A very good short starring Penn and Teller and featuring the magic trick that saved the world. Vaguely amusing, vaguely bizarre but definitely entertaining. I only wish that I had a copy of it. I haven't seen it in years, but it left enough of an impression on me that I still think about it from time to time.
