Lisa Kudrow Plays Nintendo, Breaks My Heart

Why has a genuinely funny actress like Lisa Kudrow been reduced to pretending to be a Nintendo DS enthusiast in bizarre spots like this one that keep appearing in my universe:

There are equally random fem-spots with Liv Tyler, America Ferrera and Carrie Underwood (someone at Nintendo just realized that yogurt isn't the only thing women are into) but their spots don't bother me. What else is Liv going to do? She's a little old to be her daddy's video girl. America and Carrie have regular gigs. It's kind of a crime against funny that such a talented comedic actress like LK only sees the light of day as a pretend hand-held videogame enthusiast.

Someone in TV land, give this woman a call. Larry David, since you're giving the entire cast of "Seinfeld" some work, why not throw in an old "Friend".
