Feeling stressed? Got the urge to take a chainsaw to the nearest wall or a blowtorch to the nearest pipe? Well, viewers of Discovery Channel's renovation reality show Canada's Worst Handyman no longer have to indulge their destructive impulses vicariously. Interactive agency and advergame developer Fuel Industries has developed HomeWrecker, a website chock full of mini-games that utilize interactive video technology to put players right in the middle of the show's do-it-yourself action. "Video is a passive medium, but the internet isn't," says director of creative marketing Sean MacPhedran. "Would a consumer rather watch destructionor destroy?"
