William Howard Taft by the The Two Man Gentlemen Band. More videos here, here, here, and here. Their website also has a pretty funny "Dear Internet" section, offering their quasi-Victorian views on modern life.

I love this band so hard. Prime Numbers is my absolute favorite.

Thanks - it reminds me a bit of that song Ocean Bottom that was posted on Metafilter Music.

Thanks for posting this! I am always on the lookout for new stuff to load on my ipod for my commute. Plus it's likely to drive some of my co-workers really a win-win.

Their Hindenburg song is brilliant:
"People have you heard / of the greatest ship- the Hindenburg? / It carried folks of wealth and fame / and crashed in Jersey in a ball of flame."

Reminds me of the best short palindrome ever:
Taft: fat.
