yule log

It’s the holiday season, and the Christmas spirit is in the air! Nintendo knows this, which is why the company wants to remind parents of the world a fancy Switch would make a great gift for their loved ones. The Big N is targeting that demographic with a new ad. It’s basically a yule log video featuring a Switch Lite.

Yule log broadcasts are quite relaxing/boring

Nintendo of America released the festive ad today on YouTube. It runs for about 30 minutes and will test the limits of your sanity:

It’s certainly different than most yule log demonstrations. There is a great juxtaposition of a roaring fire and Nintendo Switch gameplay. Also, there is a lot of footage of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Super Mario Odyssey, and a tasty sandwich. By the way, great usage of the Snow Kingdom, Nintendo. It’s quite Christmassy.

Enthusiasts, are you feeling the holiday cheer breathing down your neck as it draws ever closer? Have you ever put on a yule log video to relax during family gatherings? Would you ever play a pricey new console close to an open flame? Let us know the answers to these burning questions down below!
