Super Pii Pii Brothers

Thanks (I think) to Nick Valison for forwarding this on. The Japanese have released a game for the Nintendo Wii that "promotes good bathroom skills and allows women to experience for the first time the pleasure of urinating while standing."

I checked the page at ThinkGeek.com looking for some hint of an April Fool's Day joke, but it seems every bit legit.

The play mechanics are simple. Prepare yourself by strapping on the included belt harness and jacking in your Wiimote. A series of toilets are presented on screen and the challenge is to tilt your body to control a never-ending stream of pee. Get as much pee in the toilets as you can while spilling as little on the floor as possible. Sounds easy eh? Well the toilets open and close whack-a-mole style and occasionally the stray cat or other cute critter pops up. Spray a cat for extra points. Get too much pee on the ground and your game is over. With realistic fluid dynamics for the pee and over 100 different bathrooms from bars and palaces to automatic Japanese style toilets you'll be entertained for hours. And wait until your friends see the multi-player mode with dueling pee streams...

Had you have asked me a few years ago when I started this blog what the likelihood of me ever typing "dueling pee streams", I would have laughed and said very unlikely. And yet there it is, right in the same paragraph with "realistic fluid dynamics for the pee."

This is my blog officially jumping the shark (do people still use that reference anymore?).

Oh, and since I'm not opposed to pouring a can of gasoline on an inferno, here's a Youtube video of the game, ahem, going.





Just kidding: It is an April Fool's Day joke. You'll find out if you try to buy it. I didn't want to buy it (duh) but I figured that was the best way to find out if it's real. Thanks Nick. Oh, and by the way, I appreciate you not sending me the link to their Betamax-to-HD-DVD recorder.

LOL. I totally was taking the joke seriously. I was about to text all my friends who have the Wii that would have bought that game in a heartbeat.

And the term about jumping the shark is still used all the time, especially on the E channel. I guess because it's done so much on the million teen dramas on tv.
