Spinal Tap at Stonehenge

VIDEO OF THE WEEK: "Spinal Tap" at Stonehenge

"This Is Spinal Tap" is the gift that keeps on giving. Not only is Rob Reiner's 1984 classic mockumentary funny after repeated viewings, but the movie's characters — an aimless heavy metal band — continue to pop up years later. They reunited last year for a short film screened at the Tribeca Film Festival as part of an initiative to raise awareness about global warming. Now, Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest, who went to make mockumentaries his specialty) is at — of all places — Stonehenge. In a spoof interview, Tufnel explains the iconic British site's mysteries in videos posted at It's part of a promotion for an upcoming series on the National Geographic Channel.
