that links the present
to the past. (Adam)
Ooh, are you
talking about history? I love history! (narrator)
What was that? Is someone talking
during my intro? Hello?
Ugh, maybe I’m hearing things. Where was I?
Ah, yes. Put down your smartphones and let me, your trusty
uncorrectable narrator guide you through
my animated chronicle of fascinating
historical facts. Let us begin
with the founding of our nation, the American Revolution. It’s the story of honest,
faithful George Washington, who led his band of patriots
to victory. Come, patriots!
Fight for liberty! (man)
For freedom! (man 2)
For liberty! (man 3)
And ’cause we hate
tea for some reason! Actually… (narrator)
Patriots like Paul Revere, whose midnight ride
saved Boston. The British are coming,
the British are coming! Uh, that’s not– The British are coming! (narrator)
And the brave soldiers
of the continental army, who, united by a desire
to be free, overcame tyranny. (Adam)
you just said is wrong. (narrator)
Who do you think you are interrupting my show? Hi, I’m Adam! Adam?
Who in the… Ah, you must be one
of the Frenchmen. You don’t come in until later. I’m not French. You’re gonna tell me
you’re not French with hair
and clothes like that? Nope, not French,
but destroying misconceptions is my raison d’être. Many of the stories
we know about the Revolution aren’t really history.
They’re myths. So I’m here to set
the record straight. Stop dog-earing the page,
you jerk! You’re ruining it! Sorry, ruining
is kinda my thing. I’m Adam Conover and this is
“Reanimated History.” ♪♪
