    There's a reason music videos look strange. I could just talk about framerate, cuts and continuity... or I could get an actual music video director. And a leaf blower.

      I thought about singing in this, then I thought better of it. Thanks to all the production crew who made this happen: pull down the description for full credits!

      1. Steve White

      2. Archie Pereira

      4. Call up nature - connecting with nature on youtube

        You should do a new version of the same footage where you sing🥺

      5. Pete Venuti

    4. Saku

      That "ʰᵉᵉᵉᵉʸ" at 2:03 :D

    5. Harsh Jain

      So a science dude makes a more spectacular video than those uneducated music idiots. Ask a music video artist to make a science video. ............. PS : its impossible cause requires education and intelligence.

    6. Dice

      Why did it take me so long to get the joke.

    7. ZEO

      --- what if i am deaf. How could i know the audio is the wrong speed, that the cuts aren't in sequence , that there is no music or that I can't get this song on Spotify. The wonderful nature of life

    9. James Deland

      A moment of silence for people who still can't find this song

    10. Violet Moon

      Good. Now cast him as James Bond.

    11. David Contreras

      The aspiring soprano extracellularly learn because range rhetorically analyse against a somber step-grandmother. ritzy, scientific margaret

    20. san4009

    21. Kaveh's Aviation

      Travis Scott

    22. Jon Willig

      Can you please do another version of this with some of the hip hop music videos coming out from Nicki Minaj and Cardi B and stuff. It's all so surreal with weird elements of scifi.

    23. Mr Mercaman


    24. DieHiovanie

      My sublime music taste brought me here. Real legends don't need to google this song. Like who's watching in 2022. Please come to Brazil.

    25. David Koolman

      Who is listening to this in 2021?

    26. E González

      Next thing is that someone makes a song and matches it to this video :o

    27. Waffle Does Stuff

      Why hasn't this got a grammy? The grammy is SOO rigged!!

    28. Manuel F.

      Thumbs up, if you are listening in 2021.

    29. Aquatically

      If music videos were filmed like educational videos. Please!!

    40. Jawico

    51. Precious Abolarinwa

      **me str8 vibing to this song in library** Librarian: 👁👄👁

    52. Andras Libal

      This is like the video about every TED talk. It deconstructs them to their basic level. Genius.

    53. J.Q. Public

      Legendary 🙌🏼

    54. 1sMiku

      ah yes 4K on a 1080p monitor, sure

    55. Sad Loser

      Guys this slaps 😤

    56. Ben Smith

      1:24 I love how when Tom says "if my lips dont quite match up-" in the only scene where his lips dont match up. Call me Sherlock but im 100% sure that was intentional and definitely a cool addition to detail that we didnt really need but received anyway.

    57. G

      Did you mean, "If music videos were educational videos"?

    58. OrOrg

      If you're still listening to this in 2021 you're a real legend

    59. The L man


    60. DS Gamer

    63. James Carstairs

      Kind of honoured that I now go to the same uni that you did. I don't know who's more famous - you or Longboi? Maybe a crossover episode?

    64. Giovanni Moreno

      U tricked me!🤣

    65. Muhammad Sendi

      This ending is the biggest troll in story plot video history

    66. Pixion

      We flew a kite in a public place~

    67. Brenton Moore

      I feel like you need to have your featured artist mentioned in the title for this to be truly authentic. Also it'd just be a good sport.

    68. Amahl Miller

      1:48 - 1:50 flashing warning

    69. tom van lin

    70. Skinks

      Because of the video I just want to think that tom speaking is a song.

    71. Nikolay Tekuchev

      I was so confused about when the actual educational video would begin, but then it clicked! And i was like ohhh nice!
