Nintendo sent me and a few other YouTube people early copies of the game to make videos for. I don't know how many people were included, but they should all be released online today. I was super excited to get a copy of the game, and now I'm happy to share my little video.

Frank struggles with an ancient piece of computer software.

After the success of The Blair Wii U Project, Nintendo invited me to make a new commercial for them. We had to make this in 48 hours and incorporate a specific game feature from Super Mario Bros U. Made with a team of other winners Ethan Newberry, Zack Finfrock, and Josh Jepson, I wrote, acted, and co-edited it. This screened last Thursday night at Nintendo’s Sundance party, which they flew me out for.

There’s also a behind-the-scenes feature about the 48 hour film challenge, as well as the two other videos, all on Nintendo’s official YouTube channel.

A documentary crew follows Frank, a 20-year old Asian-obsessed otaku, as he interacts with Asian Americans.

Ot-a-ku (n.) - an avid collector or enthusiast, esp. one who is obsessed with anime, video games, or the computer and rarely leaves home.

Microsoft's official response to the PSN tragedy.

Produced by the same advertising agency that brought you 2008's successful "Get a REAL DVD" Anti-Piracy PSA.

I'm like really bummed about it. Grieving through video is the only way I know how.
