“Featured” may be a strong word, but there was a lot of talk about the Wii and fitness.Ã‚Â My videos, story, and news clippings were featured a couple times. Here’s what Reggie said in an interview with G4:
“Our objective with Wii Fit is all about expanding the audience and taking advantage of what our consumers are already doing with Wii Sports, theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re using it to workout and lose weight this [Wii Fit] just drives it in a whole new way”
That may or may not have been a direct nod to WiiNintendo’s Wii Sports Experiment.Ã‚Â I know that Reggie and all of Nintendo were “briefed” about my experiment back in January because I was in talks with the PR department of Nintendo of America about a possible book deal and I was told that everyone at Nintendo was aware of my experiment and loved it.
After I posted a video of the entire Nintendo E3 keynote speech, I was alerted by a reader that I was in the video behind Reggie as he talked about the success of the Wii and it’s fitness aspects (at about the 21:00 mark), below are some stills from the speech with me in them (and my girlfriend…I mean fiance) and below each E3 still is the actual video still they used:

Along with the footage of me they also displayed news paper articles about me and newscasts about the Wii Sports Experiment too.Ã‚Â I believe I counted about 6 total clips I was in.
