Stephen Hawking Sings Monty Python's 'Galaxy Song'

Famed cosmologist Stephen Hawking has proved his comedy chops on shows like "The Big Bang Theory," and now he's trying his hand at musicals. Hawking has partnered with the silly lads of Monty Python to recreate the signature "Galaxy Song" from their 1983 film "The Meaning of Life." The collaboration is in honor of Saturday's Record Store Day, when the 7-inch single will be available for sale. In a video of the song, 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.
Hawking then launches into the stratosphere for a trippy ride and lesson on the cosmos.
