Jay Leno was a Big NES Fan

In the 1988 issue of Nintendo Power (#3), they had an unexpected famous player profile, Jay Leno. It turns out the future Tonight Show host would take his Nintendo on the Road and played classics like Legend of Zelda, Ikari Warriors and Kid Icarus. Back then he only had 18 motorcycles and 6 cars, so he had PLENTY of time to play his NES. Now that he owns 1000s of cars (not sure of real number), I doubt he has time to turn on his old NES.

    Leno left his old NES for another console, but soon went back to it and threw the newer one out.
