-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 ]
