Fermilab's First Physics Slam

I'm sure this was a lot of fun and involves a level of performance and entertainment.

Fermilab had its first ever Physics Slam. And from the report, it sounded like it was a Smash! :)

The occasion was the laboratory's first ever physics slam. A physics slam is kind of like a poetry slam—the five contestants were given 12 minutes each to explain a complex particle physics concept to an auditorium filled with laymen. And they had to do it in the most entertaining way they could, because audience applause determined the winner.
Now, where are the videos of the event?
