The best April Fool’s: the ThinkGeek Wiihelm

The Nintendo Wii has surely revolutionized gaming as we know it. Rabid fanboys everywhere are now flailing their arms in delight as they wield the Wiimote as a tennis racket, baseball bat or sword. Problem is the average gaming geek is just not up to the strenuous task of vigorous arm movement for longer than 10 minutes. This makes those extended play sessions a thing of the past… and who wants to beef up at the gym just to play video games on your couch? We sure don’t.

Fortunately for cream puffs everywhere the WiiHelm is now available at ThinkGeek. Simply lock your existing Wiimote into the stylish white helmet and free your hands for relaxation…

  1. Wiis are so awesome, and I remember reading about the Wiihelm in the ThinkGeek newsletter and thinking “That is awesome!” The video is so funny though!

  2. Lol that is the best, more amusing because a friend bought me a Wii and I should get it in June. I love think geek, they highly amuse me 😀

  3. Haha… Great video, and great idea on their part for April Fool’s.
    The girl in the video looked like she had way too much fun playing Wii with her head.

  4. I’m mad at thinkgeek because last year I TOTALLY FELL for the fake One Up mushroom. Was, like adding it to the cart when the April Fool’s page popped up and I was SO MAD because I really wanted that little mushroom.

    I’m still bitter. But that hasn’t stopped me from buying shirts in the last year. heheh
