The latest Nintendo Switch ad, featuring Canadian actress Annie Murphy, appeared today on Nintendo’s YouTube channel. After posting several commercials recently featuring various celebrities and actresses, such as Kyary Pamyu Pamyu for Japan and Brie Larson for the United States, Nintendo seems to have turned to Murphy after the huge success of Schitt’s Creek, in which she played a down socialist of her luck, Alexis Rose.
In the ad, Murphy plays Ring Fit Adventure, Clubhouse Games, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Just Dance 2021 – and in particular does not use Nintendo’s own voice chat service to play with friends.
But many people in the comments (and our inbox!) Were more concerned about end on the video where the following screen appears:
Given that the price of the Nintendo website has a Switch for $ 300 and a Switch Lite for $ 200, their concern seemed appropriate. Did Nintendo just raise the price by a hundred dollars ?!
Fortunately, this is not the case. Prices appear to be in Canadian dollars, which are currently worth $ 0.78 in US dollars ̵
Although the ad does not actually state that the price of the dollar is Canadian, the description of the video leads to the Nintendo Canada website, Facebook page and Twitter account – and ultimately Annie Murphy is the Canadian herself. Is it really Nintendo’s fault that the two currencies use exactly the same symbol?
