Fun with mirrors

Postby Charles » Tue Jan 25, 2011 11:38 am

There was a classic scene in the Marx Brothers movie "Duck Soup" from 1933 in which Harpo disguises himself as Groucho, and imitates his every move in a broken mirror.

If you're not familiar with it, check it out.




A modern day take on a similar situation.

In this video, identical twins, each one of the other side of a pane of glass, go through their routine in a washroom while others try and figure out why they can't see their own reflection.
