The future of history via youtube

Let's face it history can be boring in todays world of real time updates. So with old songs being freshened up by adding some Dubstep of a dash of metalcore, how to bring the Black Death back to 2012? Add some "Hollaback Girl" by Gwen Stefani! Thats how.

Amy Burvall and Herb Mahelona have a series of homemade music videos that use self-written parodies of popular songs to explain different historical events. like Ancient Minoan Civilization done to "Creep" by Radiohead or William the Conqueror to the tune of "Sexyback" by Justin Timberlake.

"We are real, live, honest-to-goodness teachers. We do everything ourselves with zippo budget out of love...and sometimes insomnia!"

"We make history-based music parodies because we are PASSIONATE about history, art, music, technology, humor, and yes, costumes!"
