    Wikipedia is your friend (unless you're in the mainland a lot).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matrix_ping_pong

    Matrix Ping Pong is a popular movie clip that can be found on the Internet, in movie (avi, wmv, etc) or Shockwave Flash format. It is a recording from the popular annual Japanese show Kinchan and Katori Shingo's National Costume Competition (????????????????) showing a group of people attempting to mix moves in the style of The Matrix with Ping Pong, using kurokos -- stagehands in kabuki theatre -- to hold the actors and the props up, facilitating humorous and otherwise impossible movements. Most of the elements in the performance are set against black, rendering the stagehands invisible at first. In fact, the scene appears to be a normal game of ping pong at first sight, until the incredible feats are performed. This performance, lead by team captain: Hideki Kajiwara (?????), won the competition on March 31, 2003.[1] The movie clip became an internet meme for a while.

    Variations of the crazy ping pong stunt can also be seen in YouTube.
