The hilarious song is about four kings in the Georgian Time of the British Empire in a programme called 'Horrible History'broadcast in CBBC, the BBC's children's channel. It makes fun of the four rulers by representing them as the once popular boys group, like Westlife and Boy Zone. Horrible Histories is a very popular book series that teachs funny and horrible historical facts in daily life of the past, from the remotely ancient stone age to the 20th-century two World Wars. I reckon it one good example to show how the Brits view view their own past and their history education.
