Insulting You With a Royal Band
“The Queen’s Royal Guards are a British institution charged with greeting and playing for foreign dignitaries from around the world. In America, they are mostly known for having made Leslie Nielson’s eyes cross that one time in Naked Gun. Anytime a notable person of importance visits the country, it’s a British tradition to have the Royal Band has to play for them, and anyone who saw the ridiculous hats on display at the royal wedding should know how they feel about letting traditions die. But sometimes the band doesn’t want to play, because sometimes the person of notable importance is a douche bag.

The band faced just such a dilemma when Saudi King Abdullah came to Britain. Being sensitive artsy musician types, certain band members didn’t agree with the king’s tolerance of human rights abuses and his promotion of such delightful books as Women Who Deserve To Go To Hell. But it would be breaking hundreds of years of tradition to not play for him.
The band finally agreed to go with tradition and play for the king, choosing a song that truly represented how they felt about him:
The Imperial March!

That one really cracked me up.
Sheer eloquence through music.

I thought that was a pretty awesome use of another person’s hubris and lack of modern references! cool grin

Nothing like announcing the leader of an evil empire has arrived… gulp  cheese

Yeah, and announcing it with a passive-aggressive insult is awesome.
And I admired the way how the whole guard of honour kept a straight face.
I still get the giggles when I think of that video.
