Thanks to Save the Children UK for putting together this hilarious video (and to Monty Python for the inspiration).

This video also is a great complement to a series of videos produced by the ONE Campaign called "What Americans think about foreign aid". Before watching the video below, ask yourself:

  • Given the realities of our economy and the needs of our society, should we increase or decrease that amount?
  • Does foreign aid make a difference?
