Kidman's Brain Game

Nintendo decided to forgo the young hipster spokesperson for their United Kingdom release of "More Brain Training." Instead, the game maker opted for a more sophisticated approach.

Oscar-winner Nicole Kidman appears in the UK television commercial for the game, trying to improve her brain score. The game judges your brain score by utilizing a plethora of mini games that help activate your brain. Nicole's brain score of 52 is 12 years higher than her current age of 40. Perhaps it takes a while to get those Scientology sessions out of the system.

If this is a sign of things to come from Nintendo ads, can gamers soon expect the Jessica Alba "Mario Bros." commercial?
