Nintendo Wii: the icon of consumerism at its worst

I love the Wii, but this video is just plain unsettling.
Prepare to be disturbed.

After watching the video I found myself asking…
-why am I repulsed by this video? Is it just me? Am I a scrooge?
-what would children in other continents of the world think if they saw this video?
-how will these kids think about their Wii in a month? six months? next Christmas?
-how, as followers of Jesus, are we to help provide an appropriate balance between being generous and enjoying things – like a Wii – without allowing it to become unhealthy?

Watch it here.
