Video: Not the best way to fix your plasma HDTV

I'm not sure why, but I love this guy's style. And I don't mean his clothes.

I'm lucky. The Olevia TV I bought two years ago is working just as fine as it was the day I brought it home. But not everybody's that lucky. I have a few friends whose LCD or plasma TVs have presented varying problems. That seems to be what's happened to the gentleman in this video, and he's taken to a unique method to fix his plasma's problems: he uses a baseball bat.

I winced the entire time I watched this for the first time. I think you will, too.
