Molecules and chemical elements are the focus of this video for They Might Be Giants' upcoming DVD, "Here Comes Science." FGA's retention of Junior High chemistry was totally inadequate, so we hit the books and dialed up an expert (Eric Siegel of the New York Hall of Science) to help us create a molecular model that would please both the kids and their fact-loving science teachers. Our hybrid version combines new, more complex/random electron orbits with a Bohr-esque simplified nucleus. We then added some really cute faces for the ultimate in scientific accuracy.

  • On the CD, the intro is four bars long, but on the DVD, it is only two bars long.
