* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P48qMlAWPi0 Joan of Arc's song]], written to the tune of Jessie J's "Price Tag", telling the inspiring story of the French teenage girl who went from an illiterate peasant to a Saint.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-LeNbBCfHw The Pioneers of Transportation]], a parody of [[Film/{{Grease}} Grease Lightning]], telling us the history of transportation (trains, steam ships, motor cars and planes). It's just as awesome as it sounds.
