College Humor's 'The War Of 1812': Just As You Remember It From 8th Grade History (VIDEO)

What was the war of 1812 about again?

That is the subject of the newest parody from College Humor. Like something out of a middle school cram session, the overwrought characters in this period drama do their best to understand exactly what's going on, even as they continue fighting. Are they fighting the British? The Native Americans? The French? Are they fighting for land? Honor? Who knows? It's war!
