Excerpts from the YouTube caption: "This short segment from Orson Welles' cinematic essay 'F for Fake' may be the most profound moment in cinema history.

She's totally stoked to be on "The Dating Game" and plays it as well as anyone ever has, ending up with Bachelor #2 and a date in Palm Springs.
The video was uploaded eight days ago by one of the losers — Bachelor #1.
