Discovery Channel: The World is Just Awesome - A Recovering Physicist's Apology

About Discovery Channel: The World is Just Awesome

One of the godsends of being back in the States is that I can watch the Discovery Channel regularly again, and a recent highlight is the new The World is Just Awesome commercials that run. The song is really catchy, and I find myself humming it from time to time. It is also really funny to see the Mythbusters, Mike Roe, Bear Grills and scientists singing their bits. I love in the short version where Adam is lighting Jamie's arm on fire and singing, "I love to try stuff!" A special shout has to go to the brief cameo by Steven Hawking in the extended version of the song. I love the commercials because they really capture the illusive quality of "the world is just awesome" in a fun and just really happy way, completely differently than how say a "Planet Earth" capture the awe and beauty and awesomeness (in the biblical, not the surfer, sense) of the world. Here for your viewing enjoyment are both the 30 second and 60 second versions:
