Happy Birthday America!

236 years ago today America gained their independence from us. Today there will be parties, fireworks, and drunken mistakes all across America’s 50 states while over on this side of the Atlantic we carry on as if it were just a regular Wednesday.

Independence Day means very little to a Brit. Very little other than Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum fighting aliens and Bill Pullman giving the most rousing speech in sci-fi action film history.

My gift to you America, a film clip with a slightly off aspect ratio. You’re welcome!
