Class of 2006 Week: That Time Plain White T's Wanted to Steal a Nintendo Wii

"It burns me in the pit of my stomach," bassist Mike Retondo said of his inability to get the new console early, despite being on the Nintendo Fusion Tour

A hot decade ago, the Nintendo Fusion Tour wound its way around the country with Hawthorne Heights, Relient K, Emery, the Sleeping and the Plain White T's. At the time, Steven's Untitled Rock Show kicked it with the T's—riding that "Hey There Delilah" tsunami—to talk about gaming.

It turned out Nintendo had indeed hooked the band up with a few Nintendo DS's, although the gaming giant still had the band impatient for a Wii, which wouldn't drop till November. "It burns me in the pit of my stomach," said bassist Mike Retondo. Then the dudes started hatching a plan for how to steal the system. Very 2006 stuff.
