Girl in Lingerie an Online Hit

A video clip of a young woman playing a Nintendo Wii in her underwear has become an internet sensation.

The film of Lauren Bernat gyrating to the Wii Fit video game has been viewed two million times on YouTube.

Titled "Why every guy should buy their girlfriend a Wii Fit", it shows the 25-year-old doing hula hoop motions in only her pants and T-shirt.

Her boyfriend Giovanny Gutierrez, 30, filmed her in their Florida home and posted it on the internet without her knowledge - but says she has now forgiven him.

"She was furious when she found out. She called me on the phone screaming her head off and then hung up on me," he said.

"But she now finds herself laughing about it and enjoying her 15 minutes of fame as the Wii Fit girl. It's just crazy how it's blown up."

The game allows Nintendo Wii owners to do a range of exercises and stretches - including slalom skiing and hula hooping - under the guidance of on on-screen fitness expert.
