The CC button gives English subtitles.

Which don't help much and are not applied to the intro song.

Well, it's better than Lady Gaga. But then what isn't?

It's amazing how when you do the CGI equivalent of putting Silly Putty down on a cartoon image and then stretching it, it really does resemble Hugh Laurie's facial expressions.

I don't know what they feed the artists over there, but I want to try some. This is brilliant.

I feel I'm missing some crucial information here.

It was great to see Jeeves, and the Queen at the end! Quite an odd video, but better then this season of house.

I like how Stephen Fry had a little twitter bird on his shoulder.

It was great to see Jeeves, and the Queen... and who was the other guy? With the foot/soccer ball?

My guestimate was David Beckham, as he's one of the British people non-Britons know, but that's based solely on the soccer/football.

And I think Jeeves was actually Stephen Fry, who shared the show A Bit of Fry and Laurie with Hugh Laurie.

I think the very ending was meant to be "I dreamed people accepted me as an American doctor?" Although Hugh Laurie's accent is pretty much perfect in all the footage that makes the final cut.

Fry also played ...Jeeves. With Hugh Laurie.

And Melchett. Sometimes with Hugh Laurie.

(Tangentially, Melchett's various uses of "Darrrrrling" in the fourth series has to be a high point in the canon of English creative works.)

I enjoyed seeing the various references to the rest of Hugh Laurie's career, like bertie wooster and the prince regent.

That being said, this video is the stuff of nightmares.

Looked more like Roman Abramovich to me, the Russion billionaire who owns Chelsea FC

After I got my wisdom teeth out I took some Vicodin and then fell asleep while listening to Tool.

This is...pretty close to that experience.

When I grow up I can't decide if I want to be Gen. Melchett or John Steed.

Sure, everyone here complains when it's all CatTube, all the time but someone posts some damn Bolshie nonsense like this and you can't wait to start yodeling La Marseillaise.

I still loved it.

Can't watch past the part where the doctor strides down the hospital halls with a full entourage, obviously there to help carry his ego. I've been the patient victim of the medical profession recently. It's the jackass cardiologist who thought it was a valid test to look at my EKG after 24 hours without a cigarette (in the ICU), then pronouncing me well. Dumbass.
