If the Super Bowl’s ad parade of pathetic unempowered, dehydrated, skinned males, bitchy women, lonely bulls, people without pants and Danica Patrick left you feeling a little sad, surely this nerd-centric video by Elaine Doyle and Olga Nunez featuring Neil Gaiman, Wil Wheaton, Cory Doctorow, Lawrence Lessig, Bruce Schneier, Jason Kottke, Google Zurich, Hank Green, MC Frontalot, Patrick & Teresa Nielsen Hayden, Mr. Toast, Miss Cellania, Team Genius, Phil Plait, Allan Amato, Maddy Gaiman, Charissa Gilreath, Belinda Casas, Chuck Martinez, Jeremy James, Joanna Gaunder, and Lee Israel & Octavio Coleman Esq. of The Jejune Institute singing the lyrics of an XKCD strip should cheer you up. The strip itself is a takeoff on an ad for the Discovery Channel, which was itself made into a cartoon. More at Boing Boing.
