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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
