article imageSpoof Video: Curiosity — 'We're NASA and we know it'

By Anne Sewell     Aug 19, 2012 in Entertainment
NASA's Curiosity rover landed successfully on Mars on August 5. Now a spoof music video about it has been released, giving a musical tribute to NASA and the hardworking scientists and engineers, who "brought a little bit of Earth to Mars."
Set to the tune of "I'm Sexy and I Know It" by LMFAO, David Hudson and the guys had access to NASA gear, and added in clips from the original NASA video on the successful landing of Curiosity.
Included in the lyrics are such gems as, "We're better than SpaceX and we ain't afraid to show it."
Posted on YouTube on August 15, the video has already had 1,546,666 views.
The lyrics are included below:
We're NASA and we know it:
When I EDL, time for seven minutes of flamin' hell
Rover's touchin' down
everybody passin' peanuts around, yeah
We're at mission control, getting full use outta ev-er-y Sol (wa!)
Just 25 feet left to go
It's Curiosity, look out below (yo)
Crane lower that rover (ah)
Crane lower that rover (ah)
Crane lower that rover (ah)
N-N-N-Now bug out!
Crane lower that rover
Crane lower that rove
Crane lower that rover
Now bug out!
Kickin' it at my con(sole), this is what I see (okay)
Data streaming back from curiosity
I got stars on my 'hawk
and I ain't afraid to show it (show it, show it, show it)
We're NASA and we know it
We're NASA and we know it
(Yo)
When I look for ice, gotta calibrate, gotta be precise
And when I raise the mast, panoramic views are unsurpassed (wha?)
This is how I rove, baking red rocks in my nuclear stove
We headed to the peak, with my laser eye
No one to bury me when it's time to die (ow!)
Crane lower that rover
Crane lower that rover
Crane lower that rover
Now bug out!
Crane lower that rover
Crane lower that rover
Crane lower that rover
Now bug out!
Shoutout to Carl the Sage (and) Neil Degrasse T (B.A.!)
Shoutout to JPL and the Rocker-Bogie
We're better than SpaceX
And we ain't afraid to show it (show it, show it, show it)
We're NASA and we know it
We're NASA and we know it
