Dianna Agron’s 3DS Commercial – What Is Nintendo Doing?

For their newest 3DS ad campaign, the head marketing honchos at Nintendo decided to go for the younger crowd, and chose Glee‘s Dianna Agron for a spot touting the 3DS’s ability to use a stylus to accept human inputs.

What they also did was show the gaming community their unabashed growth into the mainstream market.

Twenty seconds or so into the spot, Ms. Agron tells us that she is “not a gamer” while using the handheld gaming device, because, while not a gamer, she is “an artist” for using Art Academy, an ‘edutainment’ piece of software according to Nintendo. (3DS, Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone)

@ the reaction to this ad campaign around the internet

Good god people, can't you share anything with anyone who doesn't label themselves "hardcore"?

It's just a commercial to appeal to non-gamers. You know, those people who are totally necessary (more so than us sometimes) to make a platform successful?
