they'll put something in your peripheral vision to make you look this way so that you can't see what's coming from your left. >> jimmy: sounds so mean. >> it really -- i have to say, if you're running the course and for a fraction of a second you think you're doing well, something awful is about to happen. >> jimmy: yeah, completely. yeah. we have some clips. you brought some clips with you. we have three of them. the first one, can you tell us about the door knocker? >> yeah, the door knocker, this is brilliant. so, there's three doors, and you get to pick a door. and if you pick the wrong door, you open it up, and a giant -- what looks to be a giant pendulum hammers you in the chest and shoots you back about 15 feet. [ light laughter ] it takes about ten seconds of watching to realize there's three doors there's also three knockers. so you're losing no matter what.
