This playful animated short gives an overview of the inventor's life, while pointing out that he might have been more of an exceptional businessman than a creative genius. Jeremiah Warren created the video to celebrate the 165th anniversary of Edison's birth, using the fast-paced, informational style of his other videos, like this one about how hurricanes get their names.
