Thunder Lag Button
There are 4 buttons that are required to obtain a golden spatula from the Mermalair Computer. One of these buttons is at the top of the Mermalair Security Tunnel. The button can only be bowled from the exposed side.
Lag can be generated by covering the screen with the cloud of a thunder tiki. This causes the framerate to drop, which causes the bubble bowl physics to change. Bowling the side of the button with enough lag, the ball can activate it from the outside. This is a small optimization compared to bowling the button normally.
This is viable on all platforms except for GameCube.
