As our intrepid Shawn Andrich pointed out, Opera, the popular web browser, will be available on the Wii this Friday. Pretty cool stuff, for sure. But what made me notice this announcement in the deluge of email I normally get from advertisers/PR folks is the unbelievably cute cartoon Berit Hanson of Opera.com attached to the press release.
How awesome is that? There’s ninjas, a Wii who speaks in thought bubble, an action-figure pose and a little spider. This cartoon alone made me think about trying out Opera in favor of Firefox.
And PR people, please take note: If you want me to talk about your product, please include a cute, less-than-20-kilobyte cartoon in your emails. Thanks.
