Weirdness: The Makers Of TV Show Resurrection Clearly Want Nintendo On Smartphones

Donkey Kong on your mobile?
The series premiere of ABC's Resurrection went out on Sunday — in North America, at least — and the show's glaring similarity to the hit French TV series Les Revenants wasn't the only eye-opening thing about it.
In one scene, a character is seen playing a game on his Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone which happens to be Nintendo's Donkey Kong — complete with on-screen virtual buttons for movement and jumping.
Of course, no version of this game (officially) exists on mobile, which means the producers of the show either sourced a bootleg version, used emulation or simply mocked-up the screen. The latter is the most likely, which begs the question — does someone at ABC want Nintendo to bow to pressure and bring its catalogue of titles to iOS and Android?
