That Mitchell and Webb Show

Click here to watch this clip.

Stone Age man is about to move to the Bronze Age. This humorous clip by Mitchell and Webb demonstrates the need for change through the eyes of two Stone Age workers. Since bronze is more versatile than stone, the stone and flint chippers are in trouble and face structural unemployment.  My favorite quote is, “smelting may be fine for the lads,” which nicely sums up the difficulty the stone workers have retraining.
