One bright sunny day in 2006 (depending on where you lived), jugglers around the world started receiving emails from their friends containing a link to a video of a guy juggling 3 balls to Beatles music. This video went viral and jugglers were inundated with emails from their friends who presumed they would like the video. Of the jugglers who received this link, Penn Jillette (of Penn & Teller) described this phenomenon in great detail on his radio show and was the catalyst in the creation of the Jason Garfield bliss diss riposte video. This sparked a juggling controversy so important to humanity that Dateline NBC was quick to cover the story.
