Malfunctioning technology -- as seen on TV!

"When in doubt, just bang some buttons and pull some wires. That should do it." - movie and TV directors everywhere

A Vimeo user made a beautiful compilation of movie and TV characters beating on malfunctioning technology in order to get it to work. Marty and the DeLorean, Miles O'Brien on Star Trek, the Fonz, and even the old man from the animated movie Up. They all play a role. 

Check out the video below for the curated bunch of clips.
