15 June 2011 – Core Gaming Systems are on the lookout for the next Nintendo family, to star in the next Nintendo TV ad! If your mom is the MarioKart leader, your dad is the Wii tennis champ and your little sister dominates the Wii Remote, then your family needs to be at the Lights Camera Play event this June.

We are calling all South African families to get down to Zoo Lake Park, Johannesburg on 25 June, between 10 am and 6 pm to audition for the first ever locally shot Nintendo TV ad. It’s a great day out for the entire family, plus a chance to make TV history.

To guarantee your place on the day, simply register on Pack your picnic basket, bring your friends and family and get ready for an action packed day in the sun.

There’s something for everyone, with Nintendo Wii and 3DS play zones, picnic areas, giveaways, and the chance to meet Mario! For all the rugby lovers, we’ve got that covered too, with the game being played on big screen TV’s.
