“The Elements”, Lehrerized & Grayed in Japanese

Theo Gray and Tom Lehrer collaborated to produce this video of a Japanese version of Tom’s masterpiece song The Elements. Theo Gray was awarded the 2002 Ig Nobel Prize in chemistry for gathering many elements of the periodic table, and assembling them into the form of a four-legged periodic table table. Tom Lehrer is Tom Lehrer.

BONUS: A full screen version.

BONUS: Tom performing the original version of his song, with animation by Mike Stanfill.

We are proud to have had a tiny hand in getting both collaborations (on the video with Theo Gray and the animation with Mike Stanfill) started. Above all, of course, hats off to Tom Lehrer!
