…Or at least televisions. The above video comes from Gizmodo via Fandome and demonstrates EXACTLY why you wear the Wii wrist strap when playing games. I think all nerds have seen the aftermath of the Wiimote-through-the-tv syndrome, but this shows it happening in action. I almost think this was staged due to how close the dude is standing to his set (while bowling no-less!!). I can say that in my experience with the Wii I have had three encounters where if I wasn’t wearing that flimsy little afterthought that I would have either lost my 60″ Sony or a window.
