On Nintendo´s press server there is an article summing up Nintendo´s presence at the Sundance film festival. It reads:
DID YOU KNOW?

Celebrities from the worlds of music, film and television lined up to check out the coolest Nintendo products on display at the Sundance Film Festival. Luminaries like Paris Hilton, Good Charlotte, Rob Lowe, Jessica Biel and the Beastie Boys visited Nintendo this week in Motorola’s Moto on Main celebrity lounge in the heart of Park City, Utah.
Visitors to the lounge got to check out all the hottest new Nintendo games for the top-selling Nintendo DS™, Game Boy® Micro and Nintendo GameCube™. Celebs like Lance Bass, Shannon Elizabeth, John Malkovich, Kristen Bell, Lucy Liu, William H. Macy and Tommy Lee received hands-on demos of the Nintendogs™ puppy training program and the hot Mario Kart® DS racing game, which features wireless online play via Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection. They also got sneak previews of the upcoming Metroid® Prime Hunters, Super Princess Peach™ and Tetris® DS games for Nintendo DS. The music-making program Electroplankton™ piqued the interest of the Beastie Boys, who will receive copies for themselves.
Other Nintendo visitors included Minnie Driver, Dennis Quaid, Chris Masterson, Joe Pantoliano, Adrian Grenier, Michael Rapaport, Nick Nolte, Daryl Hannah and Giancarlo Esposito.
Want to see for yourself? Head on over to WireImage, search for ´Nintendo´ within the ´Caption´ heading and you´ll see almost three pages of various celebrities playing Micro and DS. Don´t pay too much attention to the taglines, though. They believe Reggie Fils-Aime to be ´CEO Nintendo´ and list Beastie Adam Yauch´s nickname as ´MAC´. Good turnout for Nintendo, though.
