Mii Celebrity Talent Show

Braff Rice

One of the great things about Nintendo’s Wii is its ability to customize personal avatars, called Miis, which can be dressed up with any number of rudimentary hair styles and facial features. This has lead to users designing Miis that not only look like themselves, but look like celebrities. Jason Kottke decided to hold a celebrity Mii contest and the results are in. It’s not hard to guess the winner, above left, although Condi’s trademark scowl is rendered perfectly in the Mii on the right. More amusing results at Kottke

Since the Thanksgiving weekend I spent with my friends’ Wii, I’ve since had the opportunity to try out about six more games and aside from the Wii Sports, which I love, my favorites are Madden Football, Zelda, and Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam. Feel free to leave any suggestions for other good games in the comments.

Oh, and if anybody’s up for creating celebrity Wiis of the gay newsmakers (Lance, T.R., Neil Patrick, Foley, Haggard), feel free to send them along…
