Next, Nicole Kidman tackles Pictionary Jr.

Kidman OK, folks, I need some help with this one. Is the point of this Nintendo DS ad that Nicole Kidman doesn’t understand the complex hand gestures of “Rock, Paper, Scissors” or that her accent is throwing off Nintendo’s voice-recognition software? The first theory doesn’t reflect well on Ms. Kidman. The second doesn’t do any favors for Nintendo. This is officially the first spot that’s ever made me want to pat a superstar on the head reassuringly and say, “There there, dear. A lot of people have trouble with that.” Via Best Week Ever.
