TV Destroyed by Wiimote in Live Home Shopping Broadcast

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a07W2t2wcRA

I’ve heard arguments back and forth about whether or not this video is real, but I’m leaning toward yes, it is. At 5:05 in the video, the demonstration dude, plays some Wii Tennis, but the shitty plastic tennis attachment flies off the Wiimote and breaks the TV, something that I can easily see happening without being staged. The fact that this video is padded by nine minutes of actual selling of the Wii and aforementioned shitty accessories makes me think it’s even more real.

The only experience I’ve had like this was bowling with my friend the night he got his Wii. He had the strap on, but didn’t realize you had to tighten it, and he launched his Wiimote straight into the ceiling where it magically didn’t break, but left a nice little hole that was there until we moved out.

Also, this video makes me realize just how NOT a video game system the Wii is. Can you imagine HSN selling a PS3 today, or a Super Nintendo a long time ago? This thing is a toy. Granted a toy for the whole family that utilizes the TV and “controllers,” but a toy nonetheless.
