A few months back Nintendo sent 50 aspiring YouTube artists a Wii U deluxe console and told them to come up with the best video they could that highlights aspects of the Wii U, or any Wii U exclusive game. Today Nintendo announced that the popular channel, Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin’ is the winner of the Wii U Video Challenge.

You can watch the Wind Waker video brother and sister duo Ashly and Anthony Burch created for the challenge above. Thanks to their win, HAWP will be able to collaborate with Freddie Wong in order to create a short video inspired by Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. This new video will be shown at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah on January 16th, similar to the showcase that happened earlier this year.

If you want to check out the rest of the submissions for the contest, you can find them here.

    Wow it’s been long since I’ve seen their videos ha

  • I thought this was about our Ashley for a second XD

    • Haha no, I’m much less tan and way less humorous than Ashly Burch. 🙂

      • Alexander Kleinwechter

        Yeah, i doubt that.

        • DK_Hadouken

          He got down voted for saying he doubts she is less humorous?
          Anyways, we love Ashley!

      • Let’s start our own gaming show then. We’ll show her!!!!

  • Zuxs13

    That was terrible

  • Nintendoplaystation

    Completed on GameCube some years ago, can’t wait to play again in HD glory and I’m not one to replay games simply cus I like too many games. Once completed time to play something different.

  • Simon Stevens

    Wow….. what an awful video, were is my award for watching it?

  • TheWichi

    I can see why this won its kind of ike the humor Nintendo use in thier own videos

  • RyuNoHadouken

    horrible video…

  • Rinslowe


    WWHD redeems all past transgressions for all and sins not yet committed in the name of art.
    Wow… Is not the correct word but I really don’t want to be rude…

  • Kevin Malone

    I thought it was alright.

  • cThreep

    Well, it gave ME a laugh or two but nobody else seemed to like it.

  • Shagrath1983

    This awful video just gave me diarrhea 🙁

  • Majora’s Mask

    horrible the completionist had a better one

  • James Storino

    What did I just watch? What was the point of this? Who voted? O_O

  • Mario

    There was nothing better than this?

    • Lord Carlisle

      Quite a few were better.

      • Mario

        Seriously? And none of those won?

        • Lord Carlisle

          Seems not. Such a shame. My two favorite were My Wii U was Taken and I’m Mario.

  • Ryebread

    whats with all the hate? i must admit this isn’t there best video but they are really funny if you just gave their other videos a chance.

  • Sam

    Well that was weird…

  • Sdudyoy

    Ehh, I didn’t really like it, but I can see why some people would think It’s funny, just not my kind of humor.

  • Tim van Broekhoven

    This looks like it was meant for little kids… Did this really won?

  • Forbsz

    Black Nerd Comedy was the funniest this was crap a lot were so bad…

  • ZeldaFan83

    It gave me a few laughs and there were some innuendos in there but I didn’t see how that video showed the features or capabilities of what the Wii U has to offer. Wasn’t that the whole point of YouTubers making these videos?

  • Dominicruz

    she used to be so funny
