Pierre, really like this PISS system. I think it's a great idea we can turn into a concept.
Robin, since you've recently arrived and missed the Paul/PMTS Wacko/Scsa wars you probably don't know about that "other" video that's around. I've taken the liberty of dredging it up.

... Don’t forget that new film:
"The Wedge - Root of All Evil!"
In which Kevin Costner plays a down and out "Brother can you spare a tip?" ski instructor and finds salvation when he meets Harald Harb.
Together they battle to rid the slopes of the evil wedge that’s destroying the lives of thousands of begining skiers. On the way they meet up with new skier Paul ***** and so change his life that he gives his stocks to charity and roams the country as "PMTS Wacko". Spewing dialogue so inane he pisses off thousands and bores even more, he attempts to convert 97% of the skiing population who "just don’t get it". See how it ends!

Oh, stupid me! The description of the movie continues on the back of the flyer I received:
"The Wedge-Root of All Evil!" -cont'd
See the begining where Harb "invents" the Phantom Move late one night during a vision while walking the streets of Aspen. Relish 'the triumph of the human spirit' as Costner decides to rebuild his life after Harald tells him "You're not such a bad guy."
See the rebuilding of the "Brother can you spare a tip? " down and out ski instructor (Costner). When finally he learns the Phantom Move he's totally reborn and screams "I can ski!! I can ski!!"
Witness the Dark Side as Harb forces Costner to change his sideburns every two weeks!
See the brutal courtroom battle that ensues after a judge says of the Phantom Move:
"Are you kidding? What is this? Hasn't that been taught for years?"
Oh you'll see this battle's no phantom!
Watch how the new skier Paul struggles with learning and gets nowhere until he meets Harb and enters the Valley of All Knowledge!
You'll be tickled as you watch Costner teach the Phantom Move! Then Paul rockets past 97% of all skiers with his skills! Enjoy Paul's glory but feel the agony as Costner doesn't get a tip!
See Costner crushed as he realizes Paul is a better skier than he is! Shattered and disillusioned Costner grows a beard!! He tells Harb "I'm not cuttin' these 'burns!"
You'll feel the pain as Harb throws Costner out of the Valley of All Knowledge!
Then Harb annoints Paul as his disciple and proclaims: "You are now ‘PMTS Wacko’ !"
See the struggles as Wacko tries to convert 97% of the skiing population! Watch as he tries to show twin tippers at Snow Summit the glories of his ways and they tell him "Dude, will you just shut the f*** up! You're a Gaper!!"
You'll gasp when Harb and his disciple go play golf down south and find guess who as the golf pro? Costner!
Costner slyley pretends not to care! He's sporting curled sideburns!
Revenge comes however, as Costner disables the golf cart brakes just before the steepest hill on the course. As the cart careems downhill out of control Harb and Wacko scream "Phantom Move!!" and jump out deploying the move!
Will they survive with the Phantom Move? Does Costner get the ultimate revenge?
You'll have to .....see how it ends!
