Wario Shakes Up YouTube in Unique Ad Campaign

By Jorge Ba-oh 24.09.2008 9

Nintendo has teamed up with the folks at YouTube to present an innovative ad for Wario's latest platformer.

Wario Land: The Shake Dimension is the answer to those wanting classic side-scrolling gameplay in a gorgeous 2d world, and Nintendo seem to want to take the idea of shaking and breaking to an all-new level!

  • Wario Land ad-campaign.
  • The video can't be embedded here, so be sure to click through to experience a trailer unlike any you've seen before...

    Thanks to C3's Phoenixus and patjuan32 for the tip.

    That whole thing was orsum. Didn't quite notice it at first until the first/second shake of the screen.

    That was probably one of the most unique internet ads I have ever seen.

    I think my bro may have watched the whole thing without realising what was going on 'till the last second XD

    But yeah, awesome, wish they did that kinda thing more often. Smilie

    Love it! Great idea, and so well executed! Thought the video player was messed up at first as it's missing the play/stop button.

    Wow scroll down! - that\'s not a youtube vid! Smilie
    That\'s a flash (possibly...) file they embeded in their channel that imitates a youtube vid! (i think) so clever!!! Smilie

    Very impressive ad! I wonder how they made it happen.

    Yeah it's made to look like a youtube video, but it's really just an embedded animation like uo??S said. It's nicely executed though.

    haha that made me laugh, pretty clever!! Smilie
    I liked it!

    I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562
