A note on the juggling video: Jason Garfield is sending up a performance by Chris Bliss recorded here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AT-_2oAdN40

The soundtrack, including the applause, is lifted from it. Garfield is doing the routine with five balls instead of Bliss's three, all the while aping Bliss's little mannerisms like the shrugs and the puppy-faces. It establishes that Garfield is twice the juggler, but half the performer, and kind of a dick to boot.

Franklin,

Thanks for the background. Though, given Garfield’s obvious skills, I think we should forgive a little dickery.
