  • Our bald face Holger sings a modern christmas carol. From the TMH Christmas party 1996: MPEG(12 Mb)

    MiLaSS videos

    The "mr Smoketoomuch"-video is a part of the Travel agent sketch from "Monty Python's Flying Circus". In our videoclip, each phrase has been created by students as an exercise during the MiLaSS summer school (KTH 1999). The talking heads are running in Windows environment and this video is captured from an ordinary Pentium II PC with a RIVA TNT2 graphics card.
