The voiceover is really well done, and without keying off the "billions and billions" thing, too. Great stuff.

But more seriously, I grew up on Carl Sagan on Cosmos and every time I hear his voice I still miss him.

That's very well done, and pretty disgusting. I about spewed my drink on the computer when he said "rivers of blood"...

One of the things I'm saddest about in the world was losing the computer on which I cut up David Attenborough's voiceovers to narrate a mixtape.
I am also sad that the girl to whom I gave that tape didn't really appreciate it, but mainly because I lost touch with her and now I can't get the tape back.

You're lucky that was hilarious and well made because as soon as I realized there wasn't actually a new episode of Cosmos I was about to come through the internet and punch you for getting my hopes up so much.

It had a Kristen Schaal is a Horse thing of briefly ceasing to be funny because why is it still going on and then getting funnier and funnier because Jesus Christ it's still going on.

I have an irresistible urge to eat bacon and listen to Vangelis now.

no pun intended.

Managed to keep it together until "Would it be enriched by spices? No one can say" while the Vangelis soundtrack kicked off.
