We've no idea if this is true, but it was too funny not to at least mention. Also, it serves as a helpful reminder folks — be careful when you're playing with your Wii, you might damage a VW Lupo. Here's the post from Fun Tech Talk:
"Trier, Germany.(DP)-Klaus Mueller age (23) playing with a demo Nintendo Wii at an indoor car show got a bit carried way Friday. A near-by man waiting in line to play the Wii next, warned Mueller about the weak straps that have been reported around the US. Mueller looked back at the man and offered to show him that it was almost impossible to break the cord. Swinging his arm violently around in a display of the straps strength, he snapped the cord sending it into the window of a new Volkswagen Lupo. Embarrassed by what he had done, he apologized but still blamed Nintendo for what he called ("grobe Fahrlaessigkeit" ) gross negligence ."What do we think — did it really happen?
