It's better than those live action Pokemon X and Y commercials, I guess.
It's sensible that Nintendo doesn't want to hinge a TV spot on 3DS resolution alone, I suppose. And instead of paying for a full CG trailer, just make goofy live action spots that echo 90's commercials and feature soft faced young men, like all those shows with 30 year old high school students.
How many of you's guys are picking up this, but not a next gen console?
