Drunk History:Percy Julian

Cinema ala carte                                    


Percy Julian Creates Progesterone From a Bean - Drunk .

Have you seen this?  Comedy Central's "Drunk History?"  The premise is that an inebriated narrator struggles to recount an event from American history, while actors enact the narrator's anecdote and lip sync the dialog (Wiki). The lip syncing is key, and it's spot on.  Anyway, I first ran across this "Alabama" segment, and laughed out loud.  This was approximately 1 AM, and it woke people.  Sorry. All of the episodes seem to be available on You Tube, but none that I tried were better than this Percy Julian segment.  It's not quite up to the  Documentary film: Black Astronauts & NASSA standard, which is the best spoof ever made, but it's close.  Hey.  We need  laughs.

Someday everyone will appreciate how chemists saved humanity. I feel we are now one step closer to this revelation.

Some Brit did a 'Confederate States of America' mockumentary too. Only it was an insult to the intelligence of anyone with an IQ above room temperature.
