Playing US GameCube games on a PAL Wii

Oooh, this is exciting. No need for Freeloader, just a bit of good timing:
  • Put a PAL GameCube game into the disc slot
  • Enter the Disc Channel screen
  • Point at the start button - but don't press anything yet
  • Press the eject button
  • Press A on the start button as late as possible, just before the button's disabled
  • Take the PAL disc out and put the US disc in as quickly as possible
  • The US (or, indeed, Japanese) GameCube disc should then load
