The Dude abides on the Wii

The Big Lebowski bowling on the Wii

We were playing Wii Sports today, bowling to be specific. If you bowled on the Wii and lost control of your ball you know that when the ball goes skittling back into the folks behind you the camera moves and they all jump up. What I had not noticed until today is that those players, aside from your Mii characters actually playing, change. And look who showed up to bowl today! None other than the Big Lebowski:

Wouldn’t you agree? That must be the Big Lebowski? BTW, I would have gotten a better shot, but he walked away and hasn’t been back since. (True, after 30 minutes of trying, restarting, etc. the crowd varies considerably.) So my friends, even in the Wii, the Dude Abides.

UPDATE: Although no one seems to have noticed his presence in the standard Wii bowling game (and NB the Mii I captured above was not created by me, but is part of the original programming) there is an amusing video that sets a scene from the Big Lebowski to a video montage created in Wii bowling.
