Weekend Recess: NASA – They’re Sexy and They Know It

Who knew a Mars rover landing, a mohawk-sporting scientist, and a jar of peanuts could be so cool?

Well, the President did:

“It does sound like NASA has come a long way from the white shirt, black dark-rimmed glasses and the pocket protectors,” Obama said. “You guys are a little cooler than you used to be.”

And so apparently did a group called Satire, who capitalized on the success of NASA’s Curiosity rover mission to Mars to produce a parody of the hit song, “I’m Sexy and I Know It”.

The video for the song by LMFAO, “I’m Sexy and I Know It,” is either crude or crudely funny, depending on your tastes. But if your tastes runs toward the geeky, you’ll find this parody, “I’m NASA and I Know It” hilarious.

This video, from a group called Satire, pokes fun at the LMFAO song, as well as Bobak Ferdowsi, the mohawked NASA employee who was prominently displayed in NASA’s footage of the Mars Curiosity rover landing. With lyrics like, “When lookin’ for ice / gotta calibrate, gotta be precise,” plus actual footage of the landing, makes this song something we geeks can dance to.

Must Watch Video: Obama Too Cool to Rule

April 26, 2012 at 1:04 pm (American Crossroads, Cool, Debt, Deficit, Economy, Jimmy Fallon, President Obama, Unemployment)

American Crossroads asks this simple question:

“After four years of a celebrity president, is your life any better?”

Their latest video effort destroys the myth that Obama’s cool rockstar persona is a good thing.

The description of the video (which can be seen below) reads:

Obama slow jams with Jimmy Fallon and calls Kanye West a “jackass.” He also owns an economy where 50% of recent college grads are unemployed or underemployed, and 85% have to move in with their parents. Has four years of a pop culture POTUS made anyone’s life any better?

The fact is, Obama is cool much in the same way that the dude with the mullet, leather jacket, and pack of cigarettes was back in high school.

Everyone in school thought he was great until they realized he was six years into a four year education.

Enjoy!
