I’m not sure at what point the minds behind the smart people channels decided to start wearing their big-boy pants, but hot on the heels of Green Porno with Isabella Rossalini comes this video, Stonehenge Decoded, starring Christopher Guest as Nigel Tufnel from Spinal Tap. In it, Tufnel posits his theory that Stonehenge was built by a single man.
It’s part of a promotion for the upcoming National Geographic Channel special Stonehenge Decoded. I’m not sure why Stonehenge needs another program – you, me, and George Lucas already know it was built by extraterrestrials.
In any case, it remains to be seen whether these star-studded promos will be a more effective advertising strategy than the previous one, hearing your stoned roommate shout, "Holy shit dude, this is blowing my fuckin mind right now!" from the next room.
