Monty Python and the Holy Grail as a Serious Action Drama

It's completely counterintuitive to take a hilarious comedy and strip all the funniness out of it. But that's exactly what Testudo Aubreii did with Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

It works for several reasons. First off, it was only the Pythons' droll, deadpan delivery that made this project possible. The incongruity of the original film recut with the pompous hyperbole of the modern trailer format is just ridiculous. Then, for the many of us who are very familiar with the movie, each clip reminds us of the scene it's from, so we have to laugh anyway. -via Digg
