Rock Paper Scissors is a documentary about those faithful few who devote their lives to mastering the game.

…Rock Paper Scissors has a new champion?

RSP Championships

Bob Cooper, a 28-year old sales manager from London, is the new Rock Paper Scissors World Champion, beating out 500 other competitors to take the title. How’d he do it?

Rock Paper Scissors is a complex game with a simple set of rules, and has served as the decision maker of choice for unending arguments since 1918. The World RPS Society holds the Championships for this sport of champions each year to decide who has the fastest fists and the strongest will, with the winner receiving a small prize, but more importantly, the respect that comes with being a champion. Bob’s winning move? Scissors.
