Why Watch? Opponents beware. Opponents beware. We’ve used this column (and others) to celebrate the utterly serious, soul-deep love we have for America, but this Independence Day, it’s time to get ridiculous. Or four-dic-ulous. Either way. And for those who need somber reverence on this holiday (where we light a bunch of stuff on fire and cook caveman-style), think of this short film as an experimental thinkpiece on the apotheosis of our leaders due to indulgent (but warranted?) hero worship. For everyone else, here’s a funny animated rap about George Washington. A true classic.
