Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

This probably wouldn't work for everyone, but I found it amusing:

Spoiler for tidiness:
I admit it, it took me about 40 seconds and two readings to get it.

I thought I got it the first time -- but I decided to do a second read to verify. My initial assessment was slightly off.

To see if I am right:

With regards to language -- "playing Nintendo" is part of regular language to associate with "playing video games". Another example of this kind of language would be "Googling". If I say "Google something", you know what to do: to search.

The "XBox" equivalent is "playing XBox"... not "playing XBox 360".

OR

A mother wouldn't know the difference between an XBox and a Nintendo.

OK. I'll shut up now.

I think it's working with the assumption that people associate consoles with Nintendo. And that his real mom is clueless when it comes to recognizing hardware. While it took that extra step in thought process, I found it pretty funny =P

I have a friend whose dad is a gamer. And the wife/mom doesn't like it. So when my friend's dad bought a Playstation 3, he told his wife it's a DVD player. And she believes it and uses it to watch DVDs XD

At first when I saw him start playing I thought it was going to be the robot mom was going to tell him to keep playing but the real one would tell him to stop, but then once I saw the Nintendo and the Xbox360 I pretty much got it.

The mom doesn't know what an Xbox is

Judging from the fake laughing audience and the bad narration it's one of those shows where they show funny commercials (mostly from abroad, because Germans are unfunny). Also, they don't show the station's logo during real commercials.

Yeah, it's basically memetic among folks who play games that old people (read: anyone old enough to have kids) just call everything tangentially related to video games "Nintendo." I admit, I've been asked in recent years if I wanted any "Nintendo tapes" for Christmas.

My parents wouldn't know what a 'Ninndendoh' is...

Meanwhile it clearly reads 'Xbox360' on the box, so I'd have to shoot the other one.

The best part about that:

It's not a lie.
