I always get excited for Nintendo Direct — not just because of the possible announcements, but because Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata always makes some adorable or funny thing that's totally unexpected from a company president. Even if it's a video game company.
Here's a look back at some of these memorable appearances, which show Iwata has a good eye for games, memes and GIFs. Now that E3 is around the corner, we can only wonder what funny moments are in store for the June 11 Nintendo Direct.
It might take the GIFs a few seconds to load. The giggles will soon follow.
