This is what happens when nerds run loose in the wild…

CES has no shortage of displays. And when MAKE offered us some TV-B-Gone clickers to bring to the show, we pretty much couldn’t help ourselves. We shut off a TV. And then another. And then a wall of TVs. And we just couldn’t stop. (And Panasonic, you’re so lucky that 150-incher didn’t have an active IR port.) It was too much fun, but watching this video, we realize it probably made some people’s jobs harder, and I don’t agree with that (Especially Motorola). We’re sorry.

  1. One of them got banned from CES for doing it. Then they wrote an awesome f-you in response to all the criticism they got for it:

  2. Ha! Awesome. I mean yes, they had to have known there’d be consequences but what an awesome prank. Brilliant!
