Video of the Day: Was Shakespeare a Fraud on the Mic?

Posted By on Mon, Oct 31, 2011 at 3:21 PM

With Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow and 2012, director Roland Emmerich carved out a niche for himself as the "disaster film" director. That is, until he directed himself out of disasters with Anonymous, which addresses the conspiracy theory that Shakespeare was a fraud.

The film opens on Friday, Nov. 4. But first, you might want to bone up on your Shakespearean history with this clip of his Old World/New Age epic rap battle with Dr. Seuss.

Is it really Shakespeare rapping? Or is this a fraud, too? Mr. Emmerich, we may smell a sequel.
