The Saga of Biorn

July 14, 2011

Via Tobias Buckell‘s blog, here’s a video that’s too funny not to pass on…

It’s about a Viking, and the dangers that ensue when Religions collide…

The Saga of Biorn.

    I watched this video a couple of months ago. It’s incredibly well done (both in design and concept), and from that point of view, I loved it. But overall, it just made me sad. The ending is so tragic that I can’t bear to watch it again.

      Well, tragic, yes. But also kind of hilarious, I thought. Or, at least, I laughed. The links to mythology, and my own interest therein, were probably part of the humor, for me.

        I just watched it and also found it pretty hilarious (brightened my morning) 😉 Thanks for the link.

        No problem. 🙂

        Don’t get me wrong, I thought a lot of it was funny as well. I guess it was just when I thought about it in retrospect, especially with my own interest in the history of religion and mythology, that the tragedy of it really took root in my brain and wouldn’t let go. But I still highly recommend it.

        In some ways, thinking of it as a Tragedy – with a capital-T – makes it even more funny.
