Penn & Teller Teach the Art of Magic | Official Trailer | MasterClass


This is not juggling. This is called misdirection. And no matter what
level you are magic, we’ve got stuff here for you. Learning basic
principles of magic, it’s like learning
chords on a guitar. Once you know a few
simple principles, you can build your
whole magic routine. But if you’re smart
enough to work silently, it brings out a huge
amount of wonder. When you don’t
talk, the audience has to tell itself
the story, and they don’t know where it’s going. The basic method behind this
uses sound misdirection. [COINS JINGLING] [COUGH] Palming is when you hide
something in your hand. You’re going to bring
your whole hand around to conceal that ball and
completely close your fist. That will make all
your relatives laugh. The simplest trick you
can do involves exploring how do we know what is true. Take those two
ends and tie them in a double knot
around each other. Yeah, I’ll see you later. [LAUGHTER] There’s more magic in
cards than anything else. You don’t need to know the card. You just need to know the
card next to the card. Was that your card? Whoa Yes. [LAUGHTER] If you get good at magic, you
will automatically get good at a certain kind of acting. Magic forces you to learn
about storytelling, assumptions about the way we
perceive the world. And then smash it. That’s it. You must be empathetic. You must try to see yourself
through another person’s eyes, and I think you
have to simply say that one of the things that
makes life worth living is giving other people joy. We’re Penn and Teller, and
this is our MasterClass.

  1. 0:33 BLEW MY FUCKING MIND ….in all my years watching this dynamic duo, I have never heard him speak until I saw this video. wow. YEAH YEAH WHATEVER

  2. I fell out of my chair when Teller talked. I had to take a double check just to confirm I heard him, then fell out of my chair again.

  3. Having met Teller after one of their Vegas shows, I can confirm this is Teller's real voice. Both lovely guys, all the time in the world for their fans after every show.

  4. Is it just me or did Penn sound like he'd been smoking every gram of tobacco produced from 1586 to now when the video started?

  5. REEEEEEEEEEEEEE I have NEVER heard Teller speak and I've known of them since I was 12, this came up as an ad, I wasn't warned!!!

  6. Penn and Teller are already inspirational enough, but the way this advertisement was created heightened that feeling even more! Great cinematography and great music!

    One of the reasons why I like Penn and Teller is because you can clearly see how much they enjoy their craft based on their passion to teach others their trade. Talking about magic as not just a form of entertainment but as an ability to empathize with others and as a way of understanding how individuals perceive the world around them is not something you would normally hear from just anyone.

  7. Can anyone, please save me by telling me the name of the song they're using throughout the video, I'm so lost.

  8. 0:33

    *Spit take so hard the water cracked the monitor*

    HHHHHAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWHHHHAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTT?!?!??!?!????

  9. These videos are really well made. I respect when ads are actually a good and interesting thing to see. Very well Master Class I'm interested.

  10. I didn't come here for Teller's voice, I came to see what Teller was doing while Penn was juggling in the very beginning

  11. It just occurred to me that with Teller's voice tone he could probably do a perfect Bernie Sanders impression.

  12. YES – TELLER FINALLY TALKS๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
    That is magic!

  13. oh this makes me want to learn magic๐Ÿ˜‚ first attracted to the masterclassbecause of Neil Gaimen's writing class, now I wanna learn everything

  14. I didn't really care about magic which i thought was hokey and I had outgrown. But I'm obsessed with Teller's intelligence and what they both have to say.

  15. I love how people are spazzing that teller talked lmao. My mom damn near crapped herself hahahhahhaha. It's not a surprise, yes he does talk, and they have several interviews of teller speaking, you just look up "Penn and Teller interviews" and legit 3 videos come up where he talks in them๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ Idk why no one ever thought to google him talking lmao.

  16. teller: *huffs*
    me: oh my god what
    teller: when you donโ€™t talk the audience has to tell itself the story
    me: WHAT

  17. Teller has talked in multie interviews. He doesnt speak because wt the beginning stage of his career people would make fun of his speech. He was self concious of his voice and choice not to speak to abound further hunilation.

  18. Blew my mind to hear him speak. Been a fan for maybe 30 years (?) and I guess I always assumed there'd be some big reveal when he's on his death bed as to whether he can speak, so now I feel like a trick has been spoiled for me. Obviously that's my fault for thinking all that, but still, I kinda wish I hadn't heard his voice. At the same time, feels like a gift.

  19. Teller: Breaths in heavily
    Me: Ha, he's not gonna talk, he never talks, why would he talk, he's not gonna….
    Teller: actually talks
    Me: I spit out my chips

  20. Teller is a human and YES HE CAN TALK!!! SNAP OUT OF IT BUDDY
    Penn and Teller are both great and humble teachers and in most of the teaching part you'll see Penn and Teller interchange their roles

  21. This is the first time I've ever actually left the video I was going to watch and looked further into an advertisement. Yeah I might have to pull the trigger on this one.

  22. lol imagine if teller had a really shrill annoying voice. It would totally ruin the way u see him… ๐Ÿ˜‚ his voice suits him nicely tho

  23. Anyone else feel like his voice doesn't match him at all only because your brain has never heard him speak but only seen him silent and its really fuckin weird

  24. I have to give kudos to the editing team for making this commercial and the actual masterclass. I think P&T can talk a lot, and the masterclass ppl made the course very tight and focused on the topic (of each vid). And Teller is a very kind, patient, and nurturing teacher. Penn is pretty great too.
