Playing video games can be dangerous.
Sitting down with his “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” co-stars for IMDb, Zachary Levi shared the story of how he ended up in the hospital after playing Nintendo Wii.
He recalled the video game console, which uses motion sensing controllers and booted up with a warning screen telling players to make sure the play area was clear to minimize accidents.
“So we moved the couches into the backyard, my entire living room was totally empty so we could be playing baseball and tennis and all that kind of stuff.”
But as Levi soon learned, they hadn’t cleared everything out of the way, which turned a Wii tennis match scary when he made a big swing.
Levi did confirm that he at least won the game before everything went haywire.
