Hanukkah menorah used as Wii sensor bar [update 1]

When we heard that candles (indeed, any light source) could be used as a replacement for the Wii sensor bar, we go to thinking about how this information could be used during the candle-filled holiday of Hanukkah. After some quick experimentation, we found that a Hanukkah menorah makes for a pretty good Wii sensor bar, even if there are more than two candles.

While Kwanzaa celebrators can probably point their remotes at their Kinaras with similar effect, Christian gamers with a Christmas tree near their entertainment center are out of luck.

Video confirmation of the Wii's miracle of lights is posted below for all you doubting Thomases out there.

[Update: changed the picture to one of a more traditional Hanukkah menorah.]
