It's no secret that the candles can serve as a substitute for the Wii's sensor bar in a pinch, but our pals at Joystiq decided to push the console's candlelight-capabilities to the limit and see if a menorah would help their Wii Sports game at all. While the gameplay advantage is still in question, as video after the break shows, the menorah backed up the Wiimote just fine, with only the occasional hiccup in movement. Sadly, our Festivus-related experiments have proved to be less effective.
