    1UP Wii 'Bait n' Switch' prank

    Dan Hsu caught on quickly, after launching into a mini-tirade about unreturned e-mails to Nintendo. A few others, however, were no so lucky, even sitting down to play the games for many minutes before realizing they were mere marionettes in a sick and twisted mind game. All the embarrassment has been caught on tape, uploaded, and embedded below.
    This video is effin' hilarious. I'm still laughing. I'd be so embarassed if I was a few of those guys, hahaha.

    Really good prank IMO. I wish I could pull off something like that to my friends that want the Wii.

    That video won't load for me... and I can't seem to find it anywhere else. Great website though, check out their shipment of Wii's here now if I could only get this prank to load, it'd probably be worth the patience finding it.
