NASA wants everyone to know that its staff doesn’t consist of a bunch of stuffy nerds with pocket protectors using joysticks to drive little dune buggies around the surface of Mars while arguing about the quality of CGI in Game of Thrones (which is somewhat disappointing, BTW). Not only do these guys have a sense of humor, they’re also pretty good at being bitchy when refuting tin foil hat/end-of-the-world types. Who knew?
Now students at NASA’s Johnson Space Center have created a great bit of DIY PR with this “Gangnam Style” parody, designed to “inform the public about the amazing work going on at NASA and the Johnson Space Center.”
We’re just as tired of “Gangnam” parodies as the next blogger, but we’ll let this one slide because it is awesome. Top that, Big Bang Theory.
