IMHO, the point of the skit was show us all how stupid these (Wii) kids are.


Hi, Egan --

Thank you for the context and insight. However, if "Wii-mania" was the point, it was an easy one to miss. Note how the object of the geek twins' obsession is introduced well before the Wii is opened. The script -- such as it was -- dwelled on the twins, before and after the opening of the presents.

It seemed to me that the emphasis of the skit was ridicule; I'd describe the writing as sophomoric and unfunny. Many users and enthusiasts of TI models were likely as unamused as I was.

On a different note, readers can click a link to read about an infamously shameful example of Wii-mania.
