Don't have a Wii? Use your imagination

Who needs a Wii when you have friends that are willing to make asses of themselves? That seems to be the message of this video, in which a depressed would-be Wii owner uses a TV remote to "control" real life versions of Tennis, Golf and other games. We especially like the scene where our hero controls Punch-Out! on the NES by jumping around and calling out "left" and "right" to guide a friend holding an actual NES controller. How's that for intuitive controls?

While the video is hilarious, it's also a good reminder that playing the Wii is no substitute for real life activity. Why not put down that copy of Zelda and pick up a friend for a fake sword duel. If you're tired of Wii Tennis, why not go out and, y'know, actually play some tennis. There's a great big world out there just waiting for you to make an ass of yourself, so go play.
