In the music video for "It's Tricky", Run-DMC bust up Penn and Teller's three-card Monte scam in front of downtown L.A.'s Rialto Theater, although the joke is on them when Penn and Teller impersonate the group on stage in Japan six months later in front of a crowd who evidently can't tell the difference.

The historic Rialto on Broadway opened in 1917 and closed in 1988. The rumor in fall of 2012 is that Urban Outfitters is interested in the building for a retail store.
