That's a fun surprise! My 5 year old nephew made the cut in the video. He is the boy playing in the last 30 seconds!

Anyone else notice the Stern factory workers moving the boxed game with the "Truck this side only" sticker facing out, on the opposite side of the dolly?

Classic Stern!

Coincidentally, the New York Times also published an article about the resurgence of pinball, on the same day. Here's the link:

Great video - thanks for sharing. (and finally an answer is given as to what makes a pinball machine a hit - "magic")
