This deeply strange video will teach you the history of the world in 20 minutes

Need a little refresher on your world history? A new 20-minute YouTube video is sure to be the cure for what ails you.

In the “history of the entire world, i guess,” video blogger and musician Bill Wurtz explains how we got here using goofy jingles, bizarre graphics, and good science. 

The video starts us off in the nothingness of the pre-Big Bang era, and then suddenly the universe happens. From there, the video is off and running. 

It moves through the history of life on Earth, dinosaurs and finally human society until we get to something resembling the world we’re living in today. 

This is a rare gem of an explanatory science video, which you absolutely should take the time to check out.
