A few days ago it was announced that Nintendo Wiis would be available to play on Norwegian Cruise Line ships, and now Nintendo also intends to hang out with all the boys at YMCA chapters across the US.

The Village People are probably also interested in getting their hands on some Wiis.

Nintendo has donated 100 sets of the hard-to-find console along with copies of Wii Sports to the centres, which were immortalised in the Village People song released in 1978.

Many of the hostel's chapters will be setting up the systems for the upcoming Healthy Kids Day on April 14, with some offering events like Wii Sports tournaments and raffles to win the consoles and other prizes.

Nintendo America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications, George Harrison, commented, "Consumers all over America are telling us the Wii helps them to stay active and fit and also gives them another reason to be together as a family."
