Horizons: The Crimson Permanent Assurance

April 16th, 2011 by | 2 comments

This week’s Horizons comes from a tip by Harris McMahon. In his own words: “For those who do not know, this is a short film directed by Terry Gilliam that appeared before the film Monty Python and the Meaning of Life. (I didn’t like the film compared to other things by Monty Python, but the Crimson Permanent Assurance completely stole the show.) The film is about pirates, but not exactly the kind of pirates that you expect. Just watch it and you will understand!” It’s a great, funny comment on capitalism and corporate culture. I suggest you just watch it (I’ve combined the two videos into a single convenient playlist, which you can view below).

And as a bonus, here’s a pirate-themed video combining two of my favourite things: Muppets and John Cleese.

    While both the name ‘Haggis’ and the name ‘Harris McMahon’ are based on the same character, I can assure you that we are different persons, if anyone pondered upon this.
