Wii effort should inspire more ‘wow’

Video gaming systems are a craze we’re going to have to live with. Millions of young people are addicted, and the manufacturers can’t make enough of them.

And like computers, there’s always a next generation of the darn things to generate yet another round of sales and elaborate new ad campaigns to whet a gullible public’s appetite.

That brings us to Nintendo’s Wii system, which, you might have heard, hit the marketplace late last month. One of the system’s distinguishing characteristics is a remote that allows the characters on screen to mimic the actions of the person wielding the controller. Catchy, huh?

Additionally, Nintendo is pos-itioning the Wii — pronounced “we” — as not just a gaming system for already obsessed youngsters, but for the entire family. Hook ’em all, and we’ll really have a sensation on our hands. That must have been Nintendo’s strategy behind the introduction of the Wii.

Which brings us to Leo Burnett, the agency that has been working with Nintendo for a while now. Burnett has unleashed a new ad campaign to make Wii the must-have holiday gift for the whole family. Unlike some previous Nintendo efforts from Burnett, however, this Wii campaign with the overarching theme line “Wii would like to play” is positively sedate.

In each of several television commercials, we witness two exceedingly polite men of Asian extraction motoring around to homes in various parts of the country, ringing door bells, bowing in the traditional manner seen in many Asian countries, holding up the Wii system, and announcing “Wii [or we] would like to play.”

Great pains are taken in each execution to demonstrate how the images on screen replicate those of the family member with the controller — bowling, hitting a tennis ball, etc. That, we conclude, is the key selling point for the new system.

But gaming addicts won’t need any prodding from Burnett’s campaign to race for the nearest outlet to pick up their Wii. And though there is something to be said for restraint in advertising — with so little of it in evidence nowadays — this campaign just might not be quite forceful enough to convince the non-addicted that Wii is for
