Look Around You

Remember those informational videos you watch as a kid? They’d always be really cheesy and horribly produced, and you had to remember parts of it for a test at the end? Yeah, those sucked. But a couple of guys by the names of Robert Popper and Peter Serafinowicz decided to create some very Monty Python-esque versions of those videos called Look Around You.

The series first debuted in 2002 with eight 10 minute shorts, consisting of Maths, Water, Germs, Ghosts, Sulphur, Music, Iron and Brain. These are all rather offbeat but amazing, and I’m guaranteeing that you’ll definitely get sucked into watching all of these, possibly getting yourself fired.

I have to say thanks to Mr. Ben Bours for introducing me to these a couple months ago while I was sick, they were a lifesaver.

Check under the cut for the rest of the series, parts 2 through 8. Enjoy ’em!
