Famed cosmologist Stephen Hawking has partnered with the silly lads of Monty Python to recreate the signature “Galaxy Song” from their 1983 film “The Meaning of Life.”

In it, fellow scientist Brian Cox rails against the inaccuracies in “Galaxy Song” when a fed-up Hawking, who has ALS, zooms up in his wheelchair and knocks over Cox. Hawking continues singing the song in his signature computerized voice.

The scene is derived from a filmed bit that Monty Python uses during its live shows.

“Galaxy Song” song was written by Python member Eric Idle, along with John Du Prez, and is “an intricate and informative lecture on the enormity of the Universe fashioned into a bewitching and, above all, highly amusing pop song,” according to the comedy troupe’s site.
