Man hacks GameCube controller for the Wii with tremendous effort

"Admit it. You've got an old GameCube from yesteryear laying around, and the slow economy (and fear for your life) is holding you back from running to your nearest brick-and-mortar to pick up a Classic Controller for your Wii. You know you want to play Super Mario 64 to work off that turkey, but you can't justify laying out the cash. Fret not; YouTube user marcan42 has you covered, courtesy of a PIC18F4520 microcontroller and makeshift GameCube connector, along with a chopped off Nunchuk extension cord. Of course, you could just pick up a different model, but that would be way too easy. We didn't say it was pretty, but if you're still intrigued, check the full vid after the break."

Was there really a point to this? I mean... You can use your GameCube controller for Mario Kart Wii and Virtual Console games, anyways. So what's the point of him making something like this?

I guess I'm just a bit confused. Is it really as pointless as I think? :P
