I was watching QI the other day (as I do) and one of the episodes featured Professor Brian Cox, who works at the University of Manchester. He is a particle physicist and works on the Large Hadron Collider. In short, he’s one really intelligent dude. He’s also incredibly accomplished.
Of course, not being from the United Kingdom, I had no idea who he was while watching the episode. So I looked him up on Wikipedia, as all good academics do, and discovered that not only is he a genius, but he was also the keyboard player for a somewhat successful ’90s pop group called D:Ream.
Granted, he doesn’t have very much screen time in this particular music video, but how could you possibly take your university physics professor seriously if you knew that videos like this one existed in society?
