Nintendo Wii Factory Video to make you feel better?

Nintendo sold 981,000 Wii consoles in the United States in November, still lots of customers did not get one or paid double price. Clearly lots of customers are not happy. Nintendo is also missing out on about $1billion in sales, because of the limited Wii supply. Nintendo is getting a bit concerned about their image I suppose.
On Friday Nintendo announced they would begin offering Wii Rainchecks to get a $249 Wii console in January, if you order one on December 20th and 21st at retailer GameStop.
Nintendo also released a video showing Nintendo’s production facility in North Bend, Washington.
I assume Nintendo wants to show that they really work hard to meet the demand for the Wii. It reminds me a bit on the fabled Santa's Toy Factory.
The only problem with the video is that we only see Wiimotes and Super Mario Galaxy being packaged. Only at the very end and for a brief moment is a batch of Wii consoles in the picture. See the video here.

A video showing the Wii production in Asia would be more exciting and would maybe help a bit with the image that is getting a bit dented for not beeing able to statisfy demand the second Holiday season in a row.
You can find over-priced Wii consoles on and on eBay.
