Wii takes centre stage at Oscars

Jon Stewart has a go at the tennis.

It's official - the Wii has gone so "mainstream" it's now hanging out at Hollywood's biggest globally televised circle jerk.

As you probably know it was the Oscars last night, and lots of films won various awards. It was an unexpectedly poor show for Britain as Keira Knightley's tits won none of the 48 categories they were nominated in.

But it was a bumper night for Nintendo in global advertising terms. As the awards ceremony resumed following one commercial break, Jon Stewart off of satirical US news programme The Daily Show appeared on stage playing Wii tennis.

According to, "It was a funny moment, and in keeping with Stewart's contemporary wit."

Judge for yourself by watching Stewart's tennis skills in action over on YouTube.
