It's hard to pick just one video from the Funny or Die series known as "Drunk History," so you should probably watch all of them here.
Not familiar with "Drunk History?" It's exactly what it sounds like: someone gets drunk and decides to talk about history. You can do it anywhere, anytime! You probably won't get famous people to re-enact it like Funny or Die does, though. Womp womp.
This video covers Nikola Tesla, and it wins the Hot Clip of the Day spot because of the pigeon love story (seriously.)
Warning: comedian Duncan Trussell can't hold his liquor (wuss) and it, along with whatever he ate that day, makes a reappearance.
