‘We’re Nasa and we know it” is the latest genius parody of LMFAO’s sexy anthem, with learned lyrics and techy tempo.
Playing off the popularity of Mars rover flight director, Bobak Ferdowsi, also known as ‘Mohawk guy’, YouTube channel Satire has produced a parody of the Nasa heart throb.
The Nasa scientist is mission activity lead for the robot Curiosity, which touched down on Mars on Thursday and will soon be relaying information back to Earth.
The line from LMFAO's original track “Now look at that body” seems distinctly terrestrial compared to the new lines “Crane lower that rover....bug out.”
Other lyrical highlights to listen out for include: “This is how I rove, baking red rocks in my nuclear stove”
It’s not the first time YouTubers have proved making that parodying a classic track isn’t rocket science. "Rapping about CERN's Large Hadron Collider racked up 7 million hits in the wake of the discovery of the God particle.
Both these articles have attracted a cleverer class of YouTube comment, with users disputing black holes, radiation and coronal Ejections.
Of course there are some exceptions. One Bob Ferdowski fan wrote: "Building a robot that smart is already impressive. Sending that robot 13 light minutes away and landing it on Mars is kicking the world's ass with your brain."
