Cover your Wii in gold chrome vinyl for no reason at all

Bored with that plain old white Nintendo Wii? Want to make it look like an abomination? Well here’s your chance! For only $19.99 you can buy a 24 piece kit that will cover all of your Wii-ness with chrome gold!

I’ve never understood the point of putting decals on your consoles. Sure, the Xbox 360 has an interchangeable faceplate, but you can always return that to the original design. The decals and stickers just seem too permanent to me. Sure, you like the idea of a gold Wii now, but how are you going to feel about it in 6 months? At any rate, the gold colored vinyl decal that you put on your Wii is supposed to protect it from getting scratched, and from the elements (I assume sandstorms and the like). The vinyl is guaranteed for life never to peel, crack or fade, so it’ll pretty much last forever. At least it’s cheap, and if you live in a house where having a gold Wii is desirable, go for it. This product just ain’t for me. I’m holding our for the “Calvin peeing on an Xbox” decal for the side of mine. MSRP is $24.95, but the kit is on sale for $19.95 at Amazon.
