This music video brings to life one of Tom Lehrer's best, and possibly most controversial songs to date.
Don't be put off by the title, and also look out for clickable extras throughout the animation.

I don’t take any credibility for the actual song, and getting copyright permission from Tom would have proved rather difficult, so consider this a tribute to a comic genius who receives, in my opinion, not nearly as much recognition as he should.



do u just not like pegeoins? and did u know if u feed them rice they die cuz it expand in there stoimic try it and see

I'm not familiar with Tom Lehrer...

Well, that is... I wasn't until I saw your flash, and checked out the site about him you linked to at the end of the flash. So thanks for that, first off!

And... anywho, of course I've heard similar songs (audience/self-mocking comedic tunes, essentially). I dug your animation style, and thought you did a really nice job of accompanying the song and assisting it with your visuals... Poor pigeons! Haha. Anyway, Tom's ghostly face superimposed on the park scene down in the lower right corner was kinda funny in itself, too...

Anyway, this was certainly quite unique for a NG music video, and I liked the preloader-game-esque "don't click on the sheep" thing at the end and all the extras + about Tom Lehrer links and all. Nifty stuff!

People find this review helpful!


i agree wit pengu.
this song is class and the animations dont let it down. i also no most of the element song by the way.



Finally someone does Tom Lehrer! I think his song about the Army was funny as hell....but my favourite has to be his song about the Table of Elements

Nice job.
