This Triangle AA Similarity: Lesson video also includes:

Two sets of congruent angles leads to three. Using diagrams of two triangles, the presentation intuitively shows that if two sets of angles are congruent, the third set is too. The portion of a geometry playlist uses that information to show that it takes only two sets of congruent angles to prove two triangles are similar.
