American History as Told by Drunk Americans

Let's face it. It's a short workweek and you're still nursing a tryptophan hangover. In celebration of the inevitable lack of productivity and procrastination that is the holidays, we present Drunk History.

The award-winning series of digital shorts, created by Derek Waters, features lessons in history, as told by highly intoxicated people. Professional actors then re-enact each scenario exactly as described, lip-syncing the dialogue (including profanity, hiccups, slurring, and puking) of the narrator into the retelling.

Hilarity ensues.
