Nintendo touchscreen ads

I wanted to share these Nintendo DS commercials, centered around the tagline “touching is good,” that I looked at for my paper. The first three in particular are notable in the way they overtly sexualize the screen and the type of touch that’s associated with it — David Parisi’s article “Fingerbombing, or ‘Touching is Good’: The Cultural Construction of Technologized Touch” (available online from the library catalog) is excellent for thinking of these — but some of the others are interesting as well.
