Everybody likes a good medieval themed music video by an amateur metal band that managed to scrape together enough cash to blow on a wide variety of mediocre costumes and middling special effects, right? Of course they do, which is why “The King That Never Was” by Alternate Reality is perfect for you, me, and everyone else in the world. If you’re familiar with Authurian legend, prepare to be offended. If you aren’t, try not to remember any of this. Actually that second one goes for everyone.

Oh and if you’re a fan of metal, just pretend it’s a joke. I mean, it pretty much is.

Here’s a brief list of some of the things I love about this music video.

  • The lead singer can’t stand up straight, apparently, and makes a great case for holding-something-to-avoid-looking-like-an-idiot.
  • “A kingdom of Met-tal” and “Re-al-it-tee”
  • “Extol the virtue of the IIIIIIrish!”

There’s more, but I’ll leave some for you guys.
