Houston, we have a Shuffle Bot. That’s right, the Mars Curiosity Rover now has an LMFAO parody video dedicated to it. Two weeks after the latest Mars explorer touched down, the comedy troupe Satire hit the web with a tribute based off of the hit song “I’m Sexy and I know It.”
Complete with break dancing astronauts, patriotic robots in bikinis and a rover with Kanye West shades, “We’re NASA and We Know It” shows that astrophysicists can party rock with the best of them.
And what kind of technologically advanced space-traveling automated motor vehicle doesn’t have its own Twitter account? After seeing the tribute, the rover Tweeted it’s approval from Mars with a #wigglewigglewiggle
Then, using its martian Twitter access, Curiosity took some time off from making landmark scientific discoveries on the surface of an alien planet to chat with one of Earth’s biggest stars.
