Gilbert Gottfried Reads the Independence Day Speech

(Video Link)

In the 1996 movie Independence Day, aliens invade the Earth, intent on exterminating the human race and devouring the planet's resources. The aliens slaughter human military forces wherever they encounter resistance. But on July the Fourth, America leads a great worldwide counterattack that ends in victory.

That counterattack begins with President Thomas Whitmore, played by Bill Pullman, giving an impassioned speech to military forces gathered at Area 51. That speech is embedded below. Gilbert Gottfried, a comedian noted for his commanding and stentorian voice, recently read that speech.

In retrospect, it is clear that Gottfried should have played that role, not Pullman.
