Pirates & Emperors

A most excellent 60s-style educational video as political trope. Here the tripped-out, balloon-high cartoon nirvana melds well with far-flung but close-hitting ridicule of the pinstriped emperor.
Don't be fooled like I was till half through: this is topical, not a vintage conceit.

At last ... someone else has seen the light!
When I look at the old world maps with Britains "possessions" I tend to think about our explorers and discoverers and realise 'not heroes but pirates!'

Methinks a couple hits of windowpane would complete the essence of this flashback! Not that I do that...er...anymore!

Funny! Entertaining! Interesting! Wrong!

Thanks though- really enjoyed the tune and the singer. They did a great job of ripping off the authentic School House Rock feel.
