OT/NT Just for fun, perhaps the greatest short film ever made.

The Crimson Permanent Assurance, sailing the high seas of international finance!

Perhaps the best parody of classic pirate movies ever filmed...

part 1
part 2

In two parts for lenth

Terry Gilliam made this as part of "Meaning of Life", one can see Gilliams truely twisted sense of reality in this film. I cannot help but laugh almost uncontrollably whenever I see it. 

Look in the film for Micheal Palin and Terry Gilliam as window washers as well as Max Headroom's Matt Frewer (sp?) as an executive.

My GF watched it with me about a month ago....her comment was "This is pointless"...to which I answered "Precisely! That's why it's funny."....she fell asleep about midway through. Had a bit better luck with the Holy Grail, and Life of Brian.
