Oprah Picks the Nikon D3100 as One of Her Favorite Things

During her “Ultimate Favorite Things 2010″ this past Friday, Oprah revealed the Nikon D3100 as one of her favorite things, and gave one to each member of the audience. As one of the most influential people in the world, the Oprah Effect should definitely give Nikon a huge boost in sales of the camera, just like Michelle Obama does for fashion companies with her outfits.

Just like in all of her “favorite things” episodes, the audience freaked out, which is pretty interesting (and scary) to watch:

    Cult was the exact thought that came to mind when my wife was watching this episode.

    But who cares what Oprah thinks?

    I think the cameras got the least enthusiastic response. The candles were a much bigger hit with this crowd.

    Wow! So . . . we don’t need review forums any more!? We could just ask Oprah!? Let’s all go buy one, because we are conformist mindless freaks!!!!!

    ooooh goo goo gaah gaah

    God . . . I wish I was back in a 60s 70s and 80s round robin worm hole

    Someone looking at this video for the first few seconds of the cheering and gasping before the power’d go out would think that world peace was achieved . . . .

    I didn’t watch the video….I simply couldn’t.
    I mean sure, better masses drinking Oprah’s kool-aid than the evil brews of religious extremists and communist/fascist dictators…I suppose.
    @Piranah25
    Nah.
    While they might figure out it’s a camera from the writing on the box it comes in, statistics indicate 97.61% of recipients will say: “If it’s a camera, why is it so big?”

    Look for a spike on eBay of new D3100′s, as they all sell them off to buy more Oprah pot pourri and Dr. Phil collector toilet cozy/bath mat sets.

    cool, great second body to have for the kids to experiment with…
