Noel Edmonds vs. Derren Brown on Deal or No Deal

You're probably familiar with the insane box-heavy show Deal or No Deal, in which people who don't know maths try and whittle down a certain number of currency amounts while being harassed by a banker via telephone. Anyone with a student loan has probably dealt with some of that, albeit without the game show set and the host. It started in the Netherlands and hit the United Kingdom shortly before a version wound up in the U.S. But it's all over the damn world and you're probably familiar with it.

What you need to know about Brit host Noel Edmonds is that he's, well, the host. And what you need to know about Derren Brown has already been discussed. The two met for a hilarious ninety seconds to open the Channel 4 mashup of Deal with another of their panel shows, 8 Out of 10 Cats. The resulting program is funny, yes, but if you only have two minutes to spare then at least watch the beginning. This is an example of Derren operating at a super villain-like level of power. Also, I have no idea why, but the inclusion of one of those hairstyling doll heads I find phenomenally creepy...
