Epic Rap Battle: Sir Isaac Newton vs Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson

Weird Al Yankovic, Chali 2na and Nice Peter (as Newton, deGrasse Tyson, and Nye, respectively) teamed up with "Epic Rap Battles from History" in order to create this miraculous music video. 

 

First, Newton derides Nye for being a "beaker in a bow tie" with only a Bachlor's degree against one of the greatest minds in scientific history, and then chides him for "wasting time debating creationists." There's also a hilarious moment in which he makes fun of cliched "science sounds" ("a bleep! or a bloop! or another wacky sound effect!").

 

Nye fires back by saying that, while yes, Newton did come up with a lot of the science that Nye popularizes, he's instrumental in continuing the conversation and opening the minds of the masses to crucial scientific concepts such as global warming. Then he continues to argue that, regardless of who is the more prominent scientific mind, at least Bill has friends and a wife, which is less compelling.

 

Then "badass" Neil deGrasse Tyson jumps in to tell Newton to "pick on a brain his own size." Poor Bill. 

 

Tyson "puts the swag back in science" and declares that "the universe is infinite but this battle is finished."
