And Now For Something Completely Different

Monty Python’s “Universe Song” Rewritten to be About Biology


Sure, it’s all just a promo for Brian Cox’s Wonders of Life on the BBC, but hey, it’s a good rewrite, and Eric Idle is actually doing the singing. All things considered, it’s quite enjoyable. Yup. Quite nice, indeed.

Can we have your liver, then?

    Lovely. Only slightly spoilt by the bloke appearing in 96% of the frames.
    Oh I like Brian Cox, it’s just that producers nowadays think they have to sell programs on the back of TV personalities that have to be front and center all the time. Take a leaf from Attenborough – it was enough to hear his voice and see him a few short minutes to make it worth it. For him, the subject and nature were always the stars, and he the bit player.

    Will give this a shot though – mostly for the experiments teased, not the talk of lions and sharks (yawn)

    Points off for showing an orangutan when the song mentions a chimpanzee.
