Pirates & Emperors 

I'm usually not a big fan of the various novelty MPEGs and flash animations that spring up on the internet and are the kid of the moment for a couple of days. You know what I'm talking about ... Somebody emails you the link to some movie. At first it doesn't download because the link's been slashdotted. The next day you watch it, and it's mildly amusing ... so you check out its creator's Cafeshop store for a little while and then quickly lose interest in the entire thing.

I'm also not a fan of nostalgia for the ephemera of childhood in the seventies, and in particular I think for the good of the culture there should probably be a ten year moratorium on allusions to School House Rock.

But having said all that ... This is genius. Enjoy.
