Looks setup to me, unless this warehouse actually had such substandard racking that a whole section would collapse when one stanchion gets taken out.

Our whole facility, warehouse included, has to pass ISO inspections every 2 years. So I might be a little bit more picky about the details than other warehousing industries.

From what I understand the original Wii units did not have a wrist strap. They were added because too many people flung them at their TVs.

I love the tapping on top of the TV at 32 seconds in to the video, as if that's going to magically fix the TV!

He shook it a little, too. If your TV's functionality comes and goes based on a light shaking, it's as good as dead. (Hole in the screen or not.)

They actually did have them, but people were flinging them so hard the straps were breaking.

And of course, there were scores of lawyers immediately on the scene to rescue us from the consequences of not knowing our own strength.

http://www.gamesindustry.biz/article...-says-nintendo

If you read the article, you'll see that the suit was asking for replacement straps (which Nintendo was already offering without needing a lawsuit to prompt them), plus legal fees for going through the motions of asking. In other words, "give us money for telling you to do what you're already doing." I think it was thrown out.
