You all must know by now that I'm a sucker for excellent science music video parodies. This one, by the folks at UCSD Neuroscience, is my latest favourite. Set to the tune of Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky', this video captures the (sometimes) desperate journey to fill your conference poster before the deadline looms. It's full of fun references to graduate school, academia and publishing - and the production value is awesome. The video was created as a party invitation for the UCSD Neurosciences Graduate Program Social, and if the party is anything like the video I'm sorry that I won't be there.
