Elemental amusement

The Nottingham University team behind the Periodic Table of Videos, many of which have gone "viral" across the web and on social media, has put together an amusing take on the classic Tom Lehrer song, The Elements, which celebrates the chemist's favorite list. By splicing together clips from their dozens of prior videos, the team has fit a single mention of each element into the song, which sung to the tune of Gilbert & Sullivan's "A Modern Major General", recounts the periodic table as it was known to Lehrer back in 1959.
