Utter genius

This video is utter, utter genius. It’s a pair of chaps playing table-tennis, Matrix-style. A stage show, with no digital retouching whatsoever, yet they still manage bullet-time effects.

Quite possibly the most inventive staging I’ve seen all year (and last month I took in the Blue Man Group in Las Vegas).

(notes: I can’t get my WindowsXP PC to play this, but bizarrely it works OK in Windows Media Player for Mac. I missed the link from Metafilter – guess I picked it up somewhere else.)

(edit: the MeFi page has a link to a much higher-quality, downloadable version. Unusually, it’s worth seeing both – the illusion is better in the crap-quality version.)
