Like Monty Python? So does superstar physicist Brian Cox

For his BBC series Wonders Of The Universe, physicist/television personality Brian Cox has nicked the beloved-by-nerds "Galaxy Song" from Monty Python's The Meaning Of Life to soundtrack his three-and-a-half-minute promo for the show. The trailer features Cox traveling the world, communing with various slimy, furry, and scaly creatures alike, all set to the tune of Eric Idle singing gaily about our "amazing and expanding universe." Considering that Cox's Wonders Of The Universe is airing on the BBC, the trailer's tune is at least bound to get some Python diehards to give the show a glance, if they weren't planning to already. 

Here's the trailer:
