This is too good not to share.

To celebrate Caltech’s symposium on quantum science, they somehow enlisted Stephen Hawking and Paul Rudd to go mano-a-mano in a game of quantum chess. Why Paul Rudd? Apparently his appearance in Ant Man, where he explored the quantum realm, qualified him as an expert. If that doesn’t pique your interest, then what if I told you the whole thing was arranged from the future by Keanu Reeves in order to save humanity?

Heck, just watch it to find out what kind of YouTube videos Hawking watches in his spare time. Trust me.
