NASA Interns Are ‘All About That Space’ in Meghan Trainor Parody [VIDEO]
We're calling it: Meghan Trainor's 'All About That Bass' is the 'Let It Go' of 2014. The countless covers and parodies keep on coming. It's like the gift that keeps on giving. Forever and ever.
The latest parody-cover to go viral is straight from a group of interns at NASA. Yes, you read that correctly: Our best and brightest, people who are literally learning about rocket science, who hold the future of our space exploration in the palms of their sweaty hands, decided to parody 'All About That Bass.' Naturally, the lyrics have been changed to be space themed: "I’m bringing rockets back / Go ahead and tell the whole world that / We’re doing exploration. Come on, board it stat / We’re ready for liftoff / Every spacecraft needs propulsion from the bottom to the top."
The video shows the interns around NASA headquarters doing things like awkwardly dancing in front of what we assume is a spaceship (because what else is even at NASA) interspersed with slow zoom-ins on footage of different planets, various space imagery and satellites.
The whole point of the video is to raise awareness for Orion's first flight into space. The YouTube video description says, "'All About That Space' is a volunteer outreach video project created by the Pathways Interns of NASA's Johnson Space Center. It was created as a parody (to raise interest and excitement for Orion's first flight) of Meghan Trainor’s 'All About That Bass.' The lyrics and scenes in the video have been re-imagined in order to inform the public about the amazing work going on at NASA and the Johnson Space Center."
