Wii Fit Trams It Up

wiitram_1.jpgTipster Luke sent us this shot of a Melbourne tram decorated with Wii Fit advertising. Not content with just sharing the pictures, Luke provided us with his perspective:

The irony of promoting a fitness product on a vehicle designed to minimise walking definitely put a smile on my face.

If you were walking down the street and saw this zoom by, would you point and laugh? I'd be too busy trying to catch my breath... you know, from all the outside movement.

    Yay Melbourne! Nintendo's really going all out with this one. Bet it sells a bunch here.

    The next few weeks should be interesting.

    Not to mention the fuck-off sized billboard on Nepean Highway around North Road, pushing the balance board to a chock-a-block roadway of overweight drivers.

    Seriously though, the interest this is copping - from random people who you'd never think would be into games - is massive. There was a chick at my work who wanted to get one, until she realised you need a Wii console to use it.

    Not ironic at all. Most people walk to and from a tram. Most likely the people on the tram have walked further than those in the cars.
