Bombay [nsfw], the new video by El Guincho, is a sexy parody of Carl Sagan's greatest hits.

The video is also a trailer for a film by the same name.

Oh shoot, I just got to work. I really enjoy El Guincho- I'm looking forward to checking this out later.

It was ok, kind of pretty, but I liked some of the other videos by the same person better, like this one.

Are these lyrics correct? There are an awful lot of sites lying to google about hosting the lyrics.

I'm all for videos that defy easy explanation, images that dissociate, momentarily from the expected.
Catchy tune as well. When I first heard it I thought, hey, this is what that Vampire Weekend band wants to sound like!

Wait, I didn't mean for that to sound so exceptionally obnoxious. Obnoxious, but not exceptionally.

If anything could have made me like Cosmos more as a kid, it definitely would have been boobs.

El Guincho is awesome. he made his first album with a mic and a Roland SP-404.

Anybody know how to do the flaming rock trick from 2:58-3:04? That was pretty cool.

That was excellent. Good mention of the spaceboobs tag.

How bizarrely awesome.

I saw a link to this video on my Twitter feed and that was the first thing I thought of too. I pretend I do an awesome Carl Sagan impersonation of him saying "The Cosmos", but I know I'm lying to myself. Love me some El-Guincho! Que Sexi, too.
