This snippet features a clip of a Family Guy parody of Cosmos, in which an episode of Cosmos is dubbed over to deny the existence of the Big Bang and promote Mountain Dew. After playing the clip, Neil DeGrasse Tyson sits down with Seth MacFarlane to discuss the impact of the episode, and to hear him redo his Carl Sagan impression.
responsibility, Would you say, like Spiderman? Everybody gets one. Yeah, well, no, because you're reaching such a massive audience. It would behoove you to bring them some real information. But he doesn't mind being either offensive or politically incorrect in so doing. But you can use that as a vehicle to convey some other point, shock you into an exposure to something he thinks you ought to know about. Well, that's comedy. I mean, you know, comedy works the same way. You know, you you say things that people, uh, see as offensive. But really, what's underneath is the message that you're trying to convey. Well, in this next clip, he did exactly that. One of my favorite family guy clips. Yeah. We now return to Carl Sagan's Cosmos, Edited for rednecks. I'm Carl Sagan. Just how old is our planet? Scientists believe it's four hundreds and hundreds of years old. Scientists have determined that the universe was created by a god bang. If you look at the bones of Jesus a saurus rex, it's clear by the use of carbon dating the Mountain Dew is the best soda ever made. I knew you were going to pick that one How do I know you're going to think that one? So that's that's being extremely politically incorrect to make a whole other point. And so so comedy can do that. And he's mixing a little bit of science because he's referencing the original Cosmos from 1980 which is very cool. And what's even more cool is I believe I heard the word Jesus Saurus. Well, I have to. I have Seth Macfarlane in my office. I had to ask him direct.
