Claymation Chess game, Riccardo Crocetta, 2008

Lest we forget that chess is war.

According to the description on Youtube:

"claymation of the chess game Roesch - Willi Schlage (Hamburg, 1910).
The position after 13...Bh3, and the ones that follow, were used in Stanley Kubrick's movie "2001: A Space Odyssey" for the game between Frank Poole and the HAL-9000 Super Computer."

In case you are a huge nerd and want to know.
