-Ladies and gentlemen,
give it up for Penn & Teller! [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ Thank you so much
for being here. -Thanks for having us.
-For coming back to the show. -Thank you, thank you.
-Congrats. Season six just kicked off…
-Yep. -…of “Penn & Teller: Fool Us.” Can you explain
what’s different this season? -Well, we did something crazy
this season. You know,
we always sit in the seats. We’re the judges. Best magicians in the world
come out, they do a trick for us,
and if we can figure it out, they don’t win.
If we can’t, they do win. But we try to do something
that no one else had ever done on one of these shows, which is
we reverse the position. And we went on our own show
to see if we could fool the greatest magician in the
world, David Copperfield. -Do we know — Do we wanna say
what David Copperfield thought? -I do know what happened,
but I’m not gonna tell you. -Okay, perfect.
-Keep watching. -But, also, I’m really excited
about the VR game. I want to talk about this. This is — Oh, there it is.
Right there. “Penn & Teller –”
What is the title? It’s a very long name.
-The title of it is “Penn & Teller VR:
Frankly Unfair, Unkind, Unnecessary,
and Underhanded.” Now that abbreviates to
“Penn & Teller: FUUUU and U.” -Very appropriate, yeah.
Genius. -And that’s the idea. You know, you’re putting on
the VR helmet. -Yeah, tell everybody,
because I think this is genius. -You bring your friend over. You say,
“I got this new VR setup.” You put the VR helmet on,
and then you’ve got someone in your house
who can’t see and can’t hear and thinks
they’re just watching TV. -Yeah. -So, you can
do anything to them. You can cover them with spiders,
steal money from them, cheat them
in every way possible. So it’s a way
to use your VR setup to make your friends
look like idiots. -That’s what I’m talking about.
-What could be better? -That’s what I want.
[ Applause ] Sony PlayStation, Oculus, Vibe. You can get it anywhere. I’m psyched about that,
because I’ve been playing with the Oculus, and this
is gonna be my new jam. All right, what trick are you
doing for us tonight? -We’re gonna do a thing for you
that’s gonna compare juggling and magic, ’cause
I started out as a juggler. And I thought that all arts,
all show business, all everything
was just practice. I practiced all the time. And Teller started out
as a magician. [ Laughter ] -Wow.
Oh, my goodness. -So people think the difference
between juggling and magic is the props, but it’s not.
It’s philosophical. Juggling is done
with really hard work, and magic is done by lying. So I’m gonna do
a juggling trick, and then Teller
will do a magic trick. I have a deck of cards.
These are Tally Ho cards. I learned the card trick
with these cards, so I have to do it with these
cards because the exact texture and the weight of them is right. I’m doing a thing
called weighing the cards. It’s a very difficult
juggling trick. All you got to do, Jimmy,
is just cut those cards, and make it hard for me. Cut halfway,
or a little bit more. Just cut them. Make sure there’s no crimps,
nothing. I’m not trying
to get you to cut anywhere. Cut wherever you want. Put the top section on my hand
right there. Cut about half,
a little bit more, yeah. Put it right there in my hand.
-Okay, perfect. -The next card —
Don’t look at it! Don’t let Teller see it,
no one see it. Slip it into your pocket
right there. -Okay.
-Just slip it in your pocket. Yeah.
-Okay. -Okay. Now, I want you
to look in my eyes. I’m not looking at the edges, I’m not using my thumb
or nothing. -Nothing.
-I’m just telling — Just like this.
-I’m looking at your eyes. -I can tell you that there are
27 cards there. Now, the challenge
is gonna go to you, Jimmy, because you are now gonna
count to 27 right there, face up,
and make it interesting. Count right there.
[ Laughter ] -One, two, three, four, five,
six, seven, eight, nine, 10… ♪ 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 ♪ ♪ 18, 19, 20, 21,
22, 23, 24, 25… ♪ 26, 27 cards.
-Do not applaud! Don’t applaud!
Do not applaud! -Let them applaud!
-Don’t applaud. Don’t applaud. Remember in your heart the awe you felt at seeing
that astonishing skill. Just hold that right there. [ Laughter ] Okay, that’s the juggling.
-Okay. -Now Teller is going to do
the magic, okay? -Okay.
-Now, Teller is gonna take — You just saw what I did,
all done with skill. What I did
was very, very difficult, which means it was done
with a lot of skill. What Teller’s gonna do
is impossible, which means it can only be done by lying, cheating,
and swindling. So watch.
He’s got a giant deck of cards. I want you to watch this
right here. Now, one card
is gonna rise out of here. The rose Teller’s using…
-Uh-huh. -It’s doing nothing.
-Okay. -More important than that,
Teller is doing nothing. This is a trick you buy.
There’s no skill required. But the 9 of hearts has risen
from the middle of the deck. Now, Jimmy,
I want you to notice, you saw that all these cards
were different. I want you to see
that all these are different. -Yes.
-I don’t need to point out to you that Teller
didn’t come near this deck. -Of course.
-You did not feel like you were cutting any special place. We didn’t set up anything,
tell you where to cut. There was no crimp.
-That’s true. -You pulled one card
out of the middle of all these different cards,
put it in your pocket. -That’s correct.
-Right now, Jimmy, reach into your pocket,
pull out the card, tell us what it is,
show it to the audience. -Oh, my gosh. It’s the 9 of hearts.
-Do not applaud! [ Cheers and applause ]
Do not applaud! Do not applaud.
-Let them applaud. -But hold —
[ Laughter ] Hold in your heart
what it felt like to be cheated. [ Laughter ] -You’re picking on them.
-Now we’re gonna vote. And in this one case,
your vote does count. -Okay.
-First, by applause. -I got that. -We’re gonna decide how many
of you liked the juggling. When you applaud
for the juggling, you’re not just
applauding for me. You’re also applauding
for Jimmy’s counting and the American work ethic…
[ Laughter ] …that we all share,
except for Teller. -Oh, wow.
-Who liked the juggling? [ Cheers and applause ] -I’m sorry, buddy. -And now,
when you applaud for the magic, keep in mind, you’re not
just applauding for Teller, but you’re also condoning,
indeed encouraging, lying, cheating, swindling,
and stealing. Who liked the magic? [ Loud cheers and applause ] And that —
-[ Laughing ] -And that, Jimmy…
-Yes. -…is why I quit juggling
and became a magician. -That’s exactly right.
Penn & Teller, everybody! [ Cheers and applause ] “Penn & Teller: Fool Us”!
