I just jumped onto the Nintendo Australia website, and was surprised to find three TV ads featuring Delta Goodrem sitting in a cafe whilst playing around with her DSi's features. It seems as though Nintendo is getting lots of famous Aussies to promote different products; with Olivia Newton-John as the 'ambassador' for the original Nintendo DS (lite) and Kieren Perkins supporting (for the most part) Wii, they must've thought, "Right, it's clearly the celebrities who promote the products and not the products themselves that are driving sales for us...I know! Let's get Delta to promote sales of DSi! That'll sell those DSi systems like hotcakes!" Any thoughts?

i can't stand those stupid 'hurr, i'm a celebrity, lookit me playin' mah DS Lite/DSi' commercials, but whatever helps Nintendo's overall sales, i guess. i just wish they wouldn't play them one after the other sometimes (there was a point in the afternoons where they were playing those Beyonce commercials over and over and over and i just wanted to throw my remote into the freaking TV as opposed to listen to her screwing up Glee Club or whatever it was she was playing).

They should get Paul Hogan to do a ad.

Believe it or not, Aussies aren't huge Crocodile Dundee fans. Nor were we mad on Steve Irwin. In fact, way more Aussies would be able to relate to sitting in a Cafe playing a DSi. But what would I know?

The irony is that Nintendo are selling their products really well without the celebrity endorsements, so why they'd ask a celebrity to endorse their products anyway is beyond me. Well, not completely beyond me. But Delta's already endorsing SunSilk shampoo and conditioner...I guess she really likes playing that DSi of hers (almost as much as Olivia loves picking on her physically-younger assistant whenever she (Olivia) has a lower brain age in Brain Training!). Sides, we loves our Delta, we does!

Why is there a thread to complain about Advertising 101?

Seriously, it's not like Nintendo's the only company that has done this. In fact, it would be pretty strange if Nintendo didn't have celebrity endorsement.
