Penn And Teller Do a Video Explaining Why Vaccinations Are So Valuable

Sometimes it takes 2 magicians to explain something so that America understands an important health issue (Yes, that sentence doesn’t feel right, but check out the video anyway). In this case, it’s Penn and Teller explaining why vaccinations are so valuable and every child/person should get them. (Note: There’s a bit of vulgar language)

The power of a well done video is amazing (See also this doctor who raps). At the NAB conference this week I heard someone talking about virtual reality and they made this incredible point. A producer creating a video on a 2D screen can make you want to watch the video. The point being that it’s the content that matters much more than the screen. Sure, a nice big screen or virtual reality is great, but it’s the content that really matters. We’re going to learn a lot about this as more and more healthcare videos are created.
