Here’s the dramatic story of Abraham Lincoln’s assassination by John Wilkes Booth, retold by a grown man rolling around on the carpet after consuming copious amounts of hard liquor. Allan McLeod is the narrator this time around (you may remember his slurry recitation of “The Night Before Christmas” for the Drunk History Christmas episode), with Adam Scott as Booth, Will Forte as his brother Edwin, and Stephen Merchant as President Lincoln. As McLeod demonstrates in this clip, “Abraham” is a really hard word to pronounce when you’ve got the spins.
