Friday Video: Rowan Atkinson as Henry VIII

Friday, June 5, 2015

Isabella reporting,

This is brand-new and brilliant from Horrible Histories -  Rowan Atkinson (of Blackadder fame) tackles Henry VIII by way of Elvis.

Really, what else is there to say?

Readers who receive our blog via email might see a rectangle, square, or nothing where the video ought to be.  To watch the video, please click on the title to this post.

First Schoolhouse Rock, now Horrible Histories. As Julie said, "Brilliant!"

And what's not to love about Rowen Atkinson??

An honest account of what Henry VIII's "reformation" was about. As citizen of Northern Ireland, I am painfully aware of the consequences which, more than 400 years later, still cost lives.

Horrible Histories is a great series in general but this clip is particularly funny and tells the story

"A little more Reformation, a little less monasteries..." haha - awesome ��

Ahh, I remember watching "Blackadder"! I've seen a few "Horrible Histories" clips, too, and it's very satisfying to see that they got Rowan Atkinson to come on. My inner editor/grammar-stickler is also amused at the little sign at the bottom saying that it's "fewer", not "less"!
