Every now and then, news of the film Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead comes up. I've been waiting with bated breath (a phrase from Merchant of Venice—did you know that?) for its theatrical release for about two years.
While waiting, though, I've been immensely entertained by the "Shakespiracy" videos they've created. They are spot on in their parody of both conspiracy theories in general and bad Shakespeare scholarship in particular. Combined with a reasonable-sounding narrator, the result can be devastatingly funny. Observe:
