Meghan Trainor's body-positive summer ditty "All About That Bass" is the target of an impressive musical parody by NASA interns who are — what else — "All About That Space." The video was filmed in and around the Johnson Space Center, home of the Orion spacecraft that just saw a successful test last week. And it's Orion that they're singing about:
"I see Orion crew workin’ that ship nonstop
We know we goin’ far
Now put that LAS on top
If you got boosters boosters, just raise ‘em up
‘Cause every spacecraft needs propulsion
From the bottom to the top"
The LAS is the Launch Abort System, by the way. Meanwhile energetic interns dance and march in tune to the surprisingly professional music.
This isn't the first NASA parody of a pop song, of course — not by a moonshot. Their previous efforts include "We're NASA and We Know It," "NASA Johnson Style," and "NASA Wallops Harlem Shake." Is this an effective use of your tax dollars? After that perfect Orion launch, we're willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.
