Brilliant Ad for Technical School Will Teleport You to Hell

Australian comedy duo honor their alma mater

Two former students of Central Institute of Technology, one of Australia's largest training institutes, have created a delightfully disturbing two-minute promotional video that showcases CIT and serves as a cautionary tale about the dangers of teleportation. Well on its way to viral success by exploding past 1 million views on YouTube, "Henry & Aaron—It's A Snap!" follows the basic story of all science fiction—that technological progress doesn't just reap untold benefits for humankind, it destroys those who dare to mess with the fundamental laws of the universe. In the process of getting international attention for their underappreciated alma mater, Perth comedy duo Henry Inglis and Aaron McCann might also have launched their own global career as the next Flight of the Conchords—or at least the next Rhett & Link.
