Morgan Freeman & Fake Neil deGrasse Tyson Teach Physics While High on Helium and Grass

Viral video #1: In a new ad for the Science Channel’s series, Through the Wormhole, actor Morgan Freeman uses helium to entice viewers into thinking about how physicists are studying gravity in places where it acts quite strangely. It’s kind of a cryptic message, but it grabs your attention, doesn’t it? Through the Wormhole returns to the airwaves, with Season 5, on June 4th.

Viral Video #2 asks you to imagine what happens when you put the grass in Neil deGrasse Tyson. “Everything is star stuff. This pizza, this cheese, this pepperoni.” That’s a reboot of Cosmos that may actually get ratings.
