In many movies - especially Action/Adventure genre ones - there are moments when the audience would like to administer a good slap to one of the protagonists and tell them to "Get a grip !"
The proposal is that for movies released on DVD, now and again (optionally, if the feature is activated at the
start) an icon of a hand making a swiping gesture appears in one corner of the image.
The watcher has the option of pressing the SLAP button on their remote and thus administering a slap to the deserving character.
The movie then continues as if the individual concerned had been given a good slap and told to "Shu tup and get on with it !", "Get over it, you wuss ! ", or "For Christ's sake, get a grip !".

different in UK English
