    Fake. I never saw Megatron or Optimus Prime at all.

    You are surprised? Where have great things been done for the last 100 years? Sweden?

    I realize it is counter-culture cool to diss 'merica amongst the illiterati, but America is an amazing place.

    • BoogieShoe

      This Canadian agrees. We have the best neighbour in the world.

      • North 'Murican

        So let's agree that North America is rockin.

    it's a wrong title, you must write "The history of the US in 2 epic minutes"

  • Tijn

    Boy, that escalated quickly.

  • Victor

    History is written by the victors

  • Rich Cranium

    Why would you put Obama in such a video. Turned a great video into a fair video.

    Nice idea, but it focuses too much on the US, especially around US warfare. And the space shuttle did NOT precede the moon landing…

    […] The History Of The World In 2 Minutes (TheChive) […]

  • matt

    a little too negative there but well done

  • Psymon Spyders

    "History of the world" and the last HALF of the video takes place in the last fifty years… But you know, the last fifty years are totally equal to the 4.4 billion years before that, so it all balances out I guess.

    Did anybody else notice that 90% of the pics with humans in them were war and destruction? Especially the ones from the last 100 years or so….

    Anybody else spot the Hoff?

  • MattH

    What an incredibly America-centric video supposedly about mankind.

  • imjake09

    Bummer, according to this it looks like we only have about 10 more seconds of music before the world explodes.


    wow, this wasa waste of time Compiling shots and videos of others wroks, how original.

  • russ jones

    soooo. all this time, everything in history as we know it built america. good thing they threw Tom Hanks and Obama in there or i would have been so lost

  • Trey Trey

    This is pretty much American propaganda. I don't know if anyone noticed that, but the mid 1800's were reached before the halfway point, and there was no mention of the rest of the world more so than our own current issues. I think we all need to pull our heads out of our asses and hopefully one day come to realize that we aren't the entire world. In fact, most of the world resents us because we follow such flawed thinking.

  • grimotr

    where was the bacon?

  • Hal

    They show a picture of Obama, then everything goes to hell. Very subtle lol.

  • Bob

    Not impressed. Chive, you have failed me

  • Dustin


  • MohawkJon

    I feel like this was a trailer for the most epic movie in the world…

  • Zach
