Shakespeare's Words -- Original Pronunciation

Every single time I read Shakespeare, I fall deeper in love with his words, his cunning, his complete genius.  Have always been curious as to how the actors in Elizabethan times pronounced their words. Here is an interesting video about Shakespeare in OP (Original Pronunciation).  For my Scottish friends, sounds a bit like they had a Scottish brogue going there.  Makes me see the Bard in a completely different light, especially his original play on words, which the pronunciation was key to get them.
Hope you enjoy.
