Over the past month or so, TikTok user Tyler Atkin (@ttptng) took parts of his car – for example, steering wheel– disable and replace them with Nintendo Wii accessories. Please don’t try this at home.
Driving a 1995 Mazda MX-5 Miata, now renamed the Wiiata, Atkin first replaced the car’s stock factory steering wheel with a tiny plastic Wii wheel. Mario Kart accessory (included with the Wii Remote hidden inside):
He then replaced the shift lever with a Wii nunchuk controller:
MX-5 floor mats? What is this, an auto show? Get that crap out of the way and replace the front floor coverings with Wii Fit yoga mats:
With all that stuff, Mazda’s grip handle looked blatantly out of place, so it had to be replaced, this time with a comically large Wii Sports baseball bat:
All of this is pointless if you can’t play a Nintendo Wii while in a Miiata, so yes, then he removed the car’s stereo and inserted a whole console to replace it, adding a small screen to the dash in the process:
All that was left was to get the car on the road, which technically works as you can see in this video:
I mean, yes, he drives, as you can see. And replacing the shifter/handbrake is purely a cosmetic choice, so never mind. But trying to turn a car with such a small wheel doesn’t look fun (or safe)! And, of course, getting out of a cramped parking space will look something like this?
The answer to this and any other troubling questions about safety and suitability is: Who cares, these aren’t permanent additions, this is a joke made for the internet that we’ve all enjoyed.
If you liked Tyler’s videos, this Wii stuff was just part of his Mazda buildwhich also includes… replacing the Wii wheel with Forza Horizon disk.
