Ordinarily, a nine-minute animated beat poem is something I would subject myself to only under extreme duress, and not willingly. So recently when I began seeing links to this pop up, my eyes immediately glazed over and I hit the "next" button in my RSS reader.
Then I looked a little closer and realized it was Tim Minchin. That changed things a lot. It's nine-minutes of sheer unadulterated brilliance.
Watch it. If you only watch one nine-minute animated beat poem in your life (and one may be all that I have in me), this is the one to watch. It tells the story of a dinner party where he confronts a credulous hippie. Good stuff.
