The worst Mother's Day gift idea ever

This is wrong for so many reasons (the least irritating of which is the condescending tone). First, a mom who wants a brain game (i.e. not my mom) wants a book of Sudoku or crossword puzzles or awesome logic puzzles, not a GameBoy. Second, a mom who does want a GameBoy (i.e. not my mom) wants a GameBoy who plays something like Dogz.

While trying to figure out who thought this ad campaign was a good idea, I (clearly not a mom) will be spending Mother's Day playing GameBoy Castlevania in all the incarnations that my library of games can supply.
