Stephen Hawking and Paul Rudd

Sometimes you see something on the ‘net and you just have to click it immediately. It might be the hot new trailer for something; or maybe an article you know is important to read; or, yes, even the latest hilariously adorable freakin’ cat video you stumble upon.

This is one of those videos. Basically it’s Ant-Man star Paul Rudd challenging renowned theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and all around genius Dr. Stephen Hawking to a game of quantum chess with the winner getting to make the keynote address at Caltech. And even more awesome, the video features Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure co-stars Keanu Reeves, who narrates, and Alex Winter, who directed the short.

Chances are you didn’t even finish reading all of that and are already watching the video, but if you’re still up here you can head below now to check it out.
