How To Burn 1,000 Calories While Wii Boxing

You guys. Wito has taken Wii Boxing to an entirely new level.

If you choose to watch this clip, please take note of a few details.

1. The level of spastic boxing increases at every round. If you prefer a 5-second spaz summary, please check out the 1:30 mark. (But then you would miss the insightful commentary, such as “I’LL PUNCH HIM DOWN I’LL PUNCH HIM DOWN,” as well as his victory dance at the end. Your choice.)

2. I enjoy how he spends half the match staring at, well, I have no idea. Channeling some sort of boxing demigod?

3. Wito can do this for 30-45 minutes at a time. I have no idea how he can sustain that level of energy. (Oh, yeah! He’s five.)

After finishing the match, he sat down next to me and said, “Phew! That boxing is a better workout than your Pilates!”

It’s a close one, but I think he might be right.

    whoorl goorl…that glancing to the side drives Ali crazy…throws the ol’ champ off his game. Leave it Derby to discover this brilliant pugilistic move. rope a dope is soooo dated.

    float like the derbs, and sting like a bee.

    He’s like the Elvis of Wii Boxing with those moves.

      Sizz! That’s exactly how I described him to my dad this morning! (Elvis having a seizure, to be specific…))

    I think you just sold me on buying Wii for the summer.

    1) I think you have underrated the coaching. “Maybe you should look at him” and “Give him a good one on the right” both led to perfectly timed knock downs.

    2) Also, and I may be mistaken, but I believe he also got the “Oh, yeaaaaaaah!” and its delivery from his coach as well.

    3) I’m pretty sure the victory dance is a 100% Derby original.

      1. Well, I didn’t want to SAY ANYTHING. But, um, yeah. Coach Mom FTW.
      2. True dat.
      3. Unbelievable, right? Lord help us all.

    Um, that is EXACTLY how I look when I play Kinect boxing. Totally wear my ass out and punch two-to-one everyone else, but I also WIN every single time. My husband says I have no strategy. Um, I do, and it’s called Whirling Dervish. Works for me. And for Wito, I see. :)

    I can’t get over the way he just seems to vibrate! And his “oh yah!”s are adorable!

    Oh, my. This was fantastic. I love how his feet never stopped moving. And his yellow-striped jammies had me thinking, “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.” :)

    I have to say, this is one of the funniest home videos I have seen. The pajamas are really what makes this whole footage sheer brilliance.

    I. Love. It.

    (And, now I need to try Wii boxing. I bet Henry would like to watch Mama make an idiot of herself.)
