Turn your Slurpee into Wii

Filed under: Video Games — icruise @ 4:32 pm

7-11 is apparently doing a tie-in with the Wii where you can get a chance to win a Nintendo Wii when you buy a Slurpee (and they even have a flavor called Strawberrwii Banana). But the real news is their slogan. I’m a little surprised Nintendo went along with this (assuming they had any input). I do like the Slurpee shaped Wiimote, though. It’s also the first time I realized that “Slurpee” has the word “pee” in the name…

I can’t decide whether it’s cool of Nintendo to be tongue-in-cheek with their product name or just stupid.
