ATTENTION AMERICANS: Monty Python launches official YouTube Channel

Intellectual Property, Internet, Web 2.0, Websites

Monty Python’s Flying Circus, the only television programme the United Kingdom has ever produced, is now yours to freely watch and link to from your blogs via an official YouTube Channel – with the remaining Pythons saying “we want you to click on the links, buy our movies & TV shows and soften our pain and disgust at being ripped off all these years.”

Twenty-four clips are currently up there for endless playback, including stuff from the movies, live performances and modern interviews with the depressingly old-looking stars. Here’s one from the Life of Brian, seeing as we’re allowed to now and it’s Friday.

There’s something in it for them – each clip’s page comes complete with an embedded Amazon link on the side of it, so the guys are making a few cents each time someone pops off to buy a compilation DVD. It’s practically a charity. Do your bit for Help The Aged Comedians today.
