Video: Comedian Wayne Brady Gets a Tad Excited About Wii Party U

The rap has potential

Wii Party U is good, harmless, silly fun, or at least that's what we think. Nintendo wants lots of people to think that, of course, and while Nintendo UK released a trailer featuring Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf, Nintendo of America has been utilising the comedic talents of Wayne Brady for much of its publicity. He's been attending events and bigging up the game for a good spell now.

NoA has now released three new videos featuring Brady — well known in the US for appearances such as those in improvisation show Whose Line Is It Anyway? — which aim to show the varied options of the minigame collection to keeping you and others amused. We think they do a decent job, showing two grown men being over-competitive and ridiculous, a family having a bit of a laugh, and the tabletop options being ideal for passing a bit of time.

You can check them all out below, so let us know what you think. We're going to sound the false advertising klaxon in the first, however, as it shows "three hours" passing at one point, yet the GamePad is still alive. Unless using an extended battery — which we doubt — the blinking red light of death should be close to killing the controller by that point...
