Nintendo totally copied me.

In September 2005, I was rather excited about all the buzz surrounding the Nintendo Revolution.
To show my support, I created a graphical signature and began using it on my forums:
The Revolution will not be televised. Nintendo Power!


      When the system’s name was changed to the Wii, I abandoned my signature in disgust in May 2006.
Eventually the new name grew on me and I revived my signature a few weeks later with a new slogan:
The Revolution will not be televised. Nintendo Power!


Now take a look at the cover of the August 2006 issue of Nintendo Power which came in the mail today:

Hey look, it’s a clever play on the old Black Power logo. Hmmm, where I have seen that before?
In short, Nintendo should hire me and pay me lots of money to do their PR and ad camapigns.

    But they’re not using Mario’s hand, are they?

    In any case, I think it is just a weird coincidence. Really, what makes you think anyone from Nintendo would look at this site? Not to mention the fact that while you do praise some Nintendo games, you also crapify (I can not think of a word) others.

    I was kinda just kidding. But Rufus from added me on MySpace, so at least one person at NOA is at least vaguely aware of the site.

    Really? You were kidding? I thought this site was devoid of sarcasm. :pacman:

    Sarcasm, my own weapon, being used against me? Noooooo!

    At least your weapon isn’t Kancho.
