The History of Civilization in 5 Minutes

This is an incredible video. I was hooked from the first scene.

Dan Bull has created a video that portrays the history of civilization in five minutes. The imagery and animation is astounding, the music is fantastic, and the words (it is a rap) are powerful. It includes subtitles, so it is easily understandable, even with his accent.

I'd rate it PG. It is a very dark (accurate?) take on history, focusing on war and negative interactions between people and cultures. I saw nothing untrue, but it is not a happy little children's story.

I was impressed by it, my children enjoyed it, and it is worth the five minutes to watch.
