Teleportation Machine Isn't A Magic Bullet After All

I kind of love this new two-minute short film promoting the British Sci Fi Channel, featuring comedian Jared Christmas. It's a great example of heightened realism — obviously in real life, if you invented a teleportation system to help you get to work on time, you'd be rich and famous, and would no longer need to go to work. But by skipping over that fact, Christmas' bedraggled businessman character shows us a higher reality — a teleportation system would just end up having its own screw-ups and hang-ups. Awesome.
