If you're not among the 571,349 people who had already seen this by the time I wrote this post, allow me to introduce you to a recut trailer for Monty Python and the Holy Grail that recasts it as a grim, violent epic. I do wish the fonts were a little more convincing, but otherwise, it's brilliant enough to revive the moribund trailer-remix genre.

 

Watch Watch This First first, every weekday morning. Because the best way to start the day is to start it a few minutes later.

I hadn't seen this. It was great. There were a couple of scenes that I think they should have left out if they were going for true seriousness, but they did a really good job.

The first time I read this, I thought you said watch this straight.
I'm not sure anyone was when they watched it the first time.

No greater love is lost than that not shared.

I agree. I know part of it is my preconceived bias toward the source material making it hard to hear most of the quotes without thinking of the original context, but "run away!" doesn't exactly elicit thoughts of "epic medieval battle". Ultimately, it was still very well done.

YES, that is one of the scenes I was referring to. The other is when the Knight of Ni holds up the herring.

Probably my favorite comedy movie of all time.

I didn't appreciate Monty Python until the last decade or so (when I finally learned to laugh at myself). But, this is a great way to sucker in those who don't know Monty Python at all!

Very well done!
