Jokeroo’s History of the World in Two Minutes: Best History Lesson Ever!

Love it? Pls Share it!

Possibly The Fastest (and Most Entertaining) History Lesson You Will Ever Have!

History was never one of my favorite subjects in school. Nothing the teacher did made it interesting.  It was always the same thing: read a chapter from the book, memorize the facts, take a test, then on to the next chapter. Over and over, day after day, year after year. B.O.R.I.N.G.

So the other day when I was browsing through videos on Daily Motion and came across one by Jokeroo entitled “History of the World in 2 Minutes”, despite my innate dislike of the word ‘History’, my curiosity got the best of me. I just had to see how anyone could smash so many years of history into two small minutes, and make it so entertaining that it had well over 60,000 views in a short time.  I am glad I did!   This video quickly became one of my favorites with its incredible photographs choreographed with the amazing song ‘Mind Heist” by Zack Hemsey.

Two viewing tips: Be sure not to blink, you may miss an entire era! Watch it more than once.  I have watched it several times, and each time I see something new.

To anyone who never liked learning World History, this one is for you!

Enjoy!
