The incomparable Olga Nunes has released the latest and greatest iteration of the net’s appreciation for Discovery Channel’s “Boom-De-Yadda” commercial.

- BOING BOING

We Love XKCD is a song and video based on an xkcd comic based on a Discovery Channel commercial based on an old boyscout song.

…it’s less complicated than it sounds, and infinitely more silly.

Starring an array of humans from, well, basically the entire internet, this project was born out of a “what if…” conversation with Elaine Doyle. From there, a song was recorded, emails were sent, and a ridiculously whimsical geek fest ensued.

(Keep an eye out for puppets and the illustrious Neil Gaiman on a trampoline. Videos below.)
