Epic Tea Time with Alan Rickman


We can’t possibly improve upon the video title, so we’re not even going to try.

(Stinque viewing suggestion: Run the video on your iPad and send it to your flatscreen/stereo via Apple TV. Crank up the music loud enough so your neighbor can’t hear you cackling like a hyena. Trust us.)

Too bad Zapruder didn’t have one of those slo-mo camera thingies. Then all our questions would be answered.

I love this. BTW he is in the remake of “Gambit.”

@nojo: Think of how dramatic that kill shot would have looked. And, we would see which direction the bullet came from.

@matador1015: Now you’re just giving Oliver Stone ideas.

Fun, Possibly Apocryphal, Fact: Costner signed up for the movie because he thought he was playing JFK.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Well, that sucks.

The video uses one of those newfangled super slow-motion cameras as Rickman Has a Moment. Takes about seven minutes to cover what looks like about twelve seconds.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: The plot thickens…

Here’s the original, part of a series by a Serious Video Artist. It has no soundtrack.

So: Somebody grabbed that from Vimeo, added the Inception score, and reposted it to YouTube. After it went viral, he may have received a Friendly Lawyer Email, and switched it to Private.

Too bad. The music nailed the gag.


Due to request by the producer of ,Portraits in Dramatic Time by David Michalek, the video “Epic Tea Time w. Alan Rickman” has now been deleted from my page. I am sorry about this, but thrilled that 200.000 people saw it. May you forever enjoy your tea with the same epicness.

Also, putting your own watermark on someone else’s work isn’t cool.

Yeah, that needed a soundtrack. Interesting, though.
