Samba de Amigo Trailer Features a Real Chimp – With Maracas!

Yes, you read the headline correctly. The new Samba de Amigo trailer, more like commercial from SEGA, does indeed feature a chimp playing maracas. There is a joke in there someplace, but I just cannot pinpoint exactly where.

The latest rhythm action game for the Wii looks like a fun family game that is destined to get you off the couch like most Wii games tout themselves.

The thing that bugs me most about these Wii commercials, is the yuppie looking families in them. They all have nice homes, wear preppy clothes, and to be quite honest with you, this one is a bit silly because no one in their right mind would let a chimp in their house. They are destructive things.

The last time I allowed one in he drank through my liquor cabinet, tried to ride my dog like a horse, took a wiz on my bedroom floor, ran up the phone bill and was eating spaghetti out of my coffee mugs. Come to think of it, that may have been a former roommate of mine – hard to differentiate between the two.

Samba de Amigo is slated for an August 19th release.

According to this trailer / commercial, it seems the game is played holding two Wii-motes and not a Wii-mote / Nunchuck. Looks like I’ll be playing this alone cause I only have two and not about to buy two more so a 2nd person could play.
