In addition to utilizing some existing Miskreant Puppets like the Old Man as a camera operator and the Whatnot puppet previously used for Mancie O'Neill, the video featured caricatures of of the Nintendo leaders in puppet-form. Included were CEO Satoru Iwata, COO Reggie Fils-Aime, and General Manager Shigeru Miyamoto.
