That time Charles Dickens became Morrissey


I came across this video via The Paris Review and I had to share it. Apparently it’s from a children’s TV show in Britain called Horrible Histories. Living in Canada, and not being much of an expert in the area of children’s television, I’d never heard of the program. But after viewing this video, in which Charles Dickens educates the audience about his life while imitating Morrissey (and using some of the singer’s lyrics), I’ve become a fan. I guess this just gives me one more thing to love about Britain.

  1. Very enjoyable! I haven’t read any Dickens for quite awhile…will definitely try this summer…just have to decide which one.
