Collecting MadVideos -- Wii Day in Madison
on

It was just over a week ago that the Nintendo Wii was released to long lines of prospective buyers nationwide, including here in Madison. On the evening of Saturday, Nov. 18 and into the early hours of Sunday morning, Sean Corse and Caleb Goessling joined the lines of nascent Wii enthusiasts at the Target on the far west side.

Over the course of 12 odd hours, they interviewed others in the line, observed its growth, played a PSP, grabbed a free T-shirt, and joined in the convivial atmosphere complete with acoustic Foo Fighters and an in-store rendition of "Happy Birthday."

Their nine-minute video report follows below.

This local look at "Wii Day" was shot by Sean Corse for Powet.tv, an online magazine that covers video games, toys and comics. More of Corse's comments on the video are available here.

If you wish to let us know about more videos by, of, and about Madison and Madisonians, please consider adding them to the Isthmus YouTube group or send a message.
