And I thought those consoles were pretty "idiot proof".
I guess not idiot proof enough for some ;\)



I wonder if he really thought he was bowling for real? lol

I'm guessing it would be an easy thing to lose one of those controllers out of your hand. You would be a complete dud if you put a Playstation controller through a TV screen.

That's why they come with a wrist strap, and instructions to only use while secured.

I also don't think they are meant to be thrown around so forcefully - that TV had a pretty major impact!

I didn't know those things come with wrist straps. Serves that guy right. I hope it was his TV.

Looks like the flimsy wrist straps were recalled at the end of 2006, so unless this guy owned the early model, he hadn't secured it well.

From his cries of "mama" I take it this middle-age guy still lives with his mother.
It was probably her TV too. \:D

The first question that comes to my mind is why on earth was he video taping himself playing that game?? \:D

Oh wow. I howled with laughter the first time I saw this video, and still end up in a fit of giggles when I see it now. That guy needs to learn to use the wrist strap. XD
