Great Job, Internet!: Here’s the story of Theresa May’s failed campaign as told by Monty Python

26 June 2017 2:34 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Earlier this month, British Prime Minister Theresa May lost the general election that she herself called. Both during and after the election, Twitter whipped itself into a frenzy, mocking everything from “protest vote” candidate Lord Buckethead to the “fields of wheat” that May admitted running through when asked about the “naughtiest” thing she ever did as a child.

Both of those make an appearance—as does lightning rod Boris Johnson as a bug-eyed dragon—in this latest video, which tells the story of May’s campaign and defeat by recasting her as King Arthur in Monty Python And The Holy Grail.
