Web Video / I Made America

Kidnapped from the paaaast and brought to 2012 Chicago, and this is the story!

I Made America is a YouTube series that puts out new episodes weekly. It follows the adventures of American Founding Fathers John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, and George Washington.

The unfortunate sextet have been brought to the future by a political party who hope to use the Fathers to promote their agenda. They refuse, and as a result, are trapped in 21st century Chicago.

I Made America can be watched on their site, or on their YouTube channel.

This work contains examples of:

  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Much to Hamilton's dismay, Thomas refuses to get a lawyer job.
  • The Casanova: Benjamin Franklin. You can thank him for the French ladies. With him. And there's only one woman for Benjamin Franklin.
  • Character Blog: Benjamin Franklin, yours truly. He was later joined by Alexander Hamilton, and the ladies of Tumblr collectively swooned.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: In the eyes of everyone else, all six of the founding fathers.
  • Curious as a Monkey: Naturally all of them, but Ben beats all of them when he learns to use an ATM machine. He's also fascinated with watches and pedometers, and it was he who taught Washington how to use a telephone.
    Benjamin Franklin: I am the master of all things financial!!
