Oh, oh-oh, oh, ohhhh! It's Mario Party DS!


We were pretty skeptical of Mario Party DS, having been nonplussed by the previous portable Party (and most of the console versions, as well). In fact, we had resigned ourselves to just not being Mario Party people. But then we saw this commercial, with its bouncy, nonsensical Kidz Bop song, and ... let's just say we were successfully advertised to. If the song is in the game, we're definitely buying it; if it's not, we're still buying it to show our support of the song.

At first we thought this must be some other region's crazy Mario Party commercial with the speech overdubbed into English. It appears on the American Mario Party DS website, though, which means that it must be a U.S. commercial. Is the song even ... language?

Yup, that's Lady Sovereign. AKA, Lady Sov. AKA, The S.O.V. AKA, the tallest midget in the game.

she is a female rap/grime artist from the UK. The song in the commercial is "Hoodie" from her album Public Warning.
