Drunk History 4

Of all the web series out, Drunk History is one of the best of the best. You should know the deal by now - the combination of drunks and American History makes for good times. The latest is JD Ryznar's telling of the far too short term of our 9th President, William Henry Harrison.

Norm MacDonald is just like you, he talks on a cell phone!
