Time to Get Up And Dance

By Mir
January 23, 2012
Category Contests

I think it’s time for a contest where you can work up a little sweat. (What? No! Sheesh! Minds out of the gutter, people.)

What’s better than trying to dance along with your favorite songs and looking like a complete dork? Dancing along with your favorite songs and looking like a complete dork while swinging a wiimote. Obviously. (I would also accept “dancing along with your favorite songs and looking like a complete dork in front of your teenager’s friends” for that one. Either way.)

I have in my possession three brand-spankin’-new copies of Get Up And Dance for the Wii, and it looks crazy fun. Play with up to four players at a time, and either just dance away or set it to Shape Up mode and get a serious workout. Please note that due to the lyrics contained in this game (artists include Katy Perry, Taio Cruz, and other hit pop stars), this title is rated T for Teen. (Read: please do not win it for your small children and then send me hate mail.)

Want to win one? Of course you do! First, go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, January 26th, 2012 for an entry. I’ll use my handy-dandy random winners picky plugin to select three winners, and there shall be much rejoicing. And dancing.

Ready? Go!


  1. I’d love one for my age-appropriate kiddos! 🙂

  2. Mir, I would love to win this! I love to dance, but can promise you I will not be doing this in front of small children. Wouldn’t want to scare them (or scar them . . .). And, you’re pretty!

  3. pretty ! i love to dance!

  4. Ack! My kids would love this! Promise I won’t send you hate mail….

  13. Yay, we have a Wii!

  14. Sounds like something my kids could actually do without bickering!

  15. Evil, evil Christmas cookies are still hanging around…my rear end and thighs, that is. It’s also really tough to get my Asperger’s kid moving, but for some reason Wii games (especially dancey ones) work their magic on her. Especially when she’s kicking my previously mentioned (ever widening) rear end! Also. We’d love to win one of these. Beautiful, beautiful, Mir.

  16. I’m totally doing this with the 3-year-old. Because I am inappropriate.

  21. Have a 6 week old baby and need to focus on working out! I’d set this to shape up mode… And actually, my 17 month old son would dance with Kevin dance mode! 🙂

  217. Would you believe my kids’ elementary school is now using Wii dance games as PE curriculum?!?!
