The Matrix Ping Pong video is from a japanese show (I believe it's called Kasou Taishou) in which different contestants has to do that kind of things.

Wiki for Kasou Taishou: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kasou_Taishou

Lots of vids like the Matrix Ping Pong:

I hope everyone realizes that the Gordon College students didn't innovate the "live action" stage performance concept. They probably ripped it off or were inspired by this..

Inspired yes, but I hope Nintendo spoke to those students before they used it in a commercial, and hopefully also they got rewarded for the idea somehow...

This is the second time they've stolen that same concept. McDonalds made a commercial just like the Gordon College skit too.
