I was watching G4 a few years ago and there was a commercial for a video game design class and the actors did that. They had PS2 controllers, one guy was turning both analogs and the other guy was just pressing random buttons. I wonder if there are any two player games that require that?

I can forgive a lot of this, because hey, it's a TV show and they can't waste 30 minutes rendering up a 3D image or whatever.
What DOES irritate the ever-loving piss out of me, though, is the fact that it's almost 2010, and every computer on TV and in the movies still sounds like a 1985 Macintosh when you click the mouse button. THEY DON'T SOUND LIKE THAT ANYMORE. HOW f***ING HARD IS IT TO RECORD A NEW SOUND BITE?!

Not sure if this counts, but I think Mythbusters has a sponsorship deal with Dell. They obviously use Apple laptops and have to tape an X over the Apple Logo. During some of their commercials its obvious that they use a blue screen on the laptop and superimpose movies/images on the screen.
