I have to agree with the majority on here, I'm bored with the endless parodies but that was a very nice video.

Oho I love that, yes the whole damn world around you may be crumbling (literally and figuratively) into uncertainty but you are NOT to show it under any circumstances. That just encourages the enemy. British Stiff Upper Lip XD

And I don't mind the memefications, let a thousand flowers bloom! (Previously I honestly thought this had something to do with "The Hunger Games" or something).

I like it. We need more of the "stiff upper lip" mentality. Too many panicky imbeciles running about.

I realllly hated the poster, mostly due to it's popularity and the parodies that've come out including the ones listed below, but I must write that I've come around after seeing this. The history and meaning behind the statement is a testament to British ideology and for the time period when it was made, this was a very bold choice color and font wise.

F.ucking HATE that poster, its ubiquity, and the countless vapid parodies, however it is nice to know where it came from. Very cool little vid.

Great bookshop. It's only about 20 miles from where I live and I'm there every few weeks (Alnwick is a good place to visit if you are ever in NE England.)
I bought a copy of the poster back in about 2005 and really liked it, but all these half-witted variations just annoy the hell out of me.

Knew it was a war time poster but didn't know about bookshop bit.
The shop is super cool!

I wonder if I'm the only person who has gotten very tired of seeing the "Keep Calm and ..." variations.

THANK YOU! I genuinely wondered, I see these everywhere and they seemed to pop up out of nowhere. I had no idea which was even the original...but I do have a favorite <3

Very interesting!
Very cool!

I could never visit that bookshop, I'd spend a week inside it! All my money... gone

Thx @Squrlz4! I learned something at IAB today, hooray!
