Studying for a literature exam can be a pain. Students speed-reading Sparknotes or Wikipedia to get through lengthy texts are an all-too-familiar sight.

Thankfully, you no longer need to plough through boring study guides with ‘Thug Notes’, a YouTube channel that provides a dose of humorous straight talkin’ that succinctly explains monotonous texts.

'Dr Sparky Sweets', the ‘thug’ behind Thug Notes, saves the day with his literary analyses of literature classics like 'The Great Gatsby' by F Scott Fitzgerald, and 'Hamlet' by “Willy Shakes” (read: William Shakespeare).

Dr Sweets believes in making literature accessible to everyone, and that “comedy is a powerful tool for education”.

With each plot summary and analysis summed up in about five minutes, he gives viewers “the low-down” on literature, ‘gangsta’ style.

Love him or hate him, he’s hilarious, and he gets the point across. It’s no wonder he has over 100,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel.

What do you think? How about you watch the videos below and educate yo’self, son!
