If you found your own history lessons at school mind-numbingly boring (who didn’t?) then this epic telling of the story of Benjamin Franklin will have you paying attention like never before. Who better to learn about the history of one of America’s greatest science pioneers (and political figureheads) from than a drunk celebrity? Illustrating a totally inebriated Eric Falconer’s account of Benjamin Franklin’s kite experiment are funny actors Jack Black and Clark Duke.

Sensitive viewers, please note that when Eric says he’s going to puke he actually does, although it’s not too graphic. Just calmly put down your onion bagel around the 1:45 mark. You’re welcome.

Ha! Most amusing. Ben Franklin doesn’t give a shit, like a honey badger.
I am not a historian but I’m pretty certain Ben Franklin was never president.
He was president of the Supreme Executive Council of Pennsylvania, which is pretty damn important. Also, with his mugshot on the $100 bill he’s practically president of today’s global economy.
