Miley Cyrus might have licked the sledgehammer first, but Dr. Carin Bondar's remake of the infamous Wrecking Ball is spoof + science at its best. Whoever thinks Miley has cornered the market on licking strange objects is in for a real treat with Organisms Do Evolve (and I, for one, think Dr. Bondar rocks the white tank top, tighty-whities, and red lipstick far better). Though the aesthetics amuse, the video also focuses on the science, and smashes creationist notions that evolution isn't true. As the lyrics state once and for all "organisms do evolve/That giant mystery's been solved/Creationism's proven false/Get familiar with our phylogeny." But does Dr. Bondar recreate the most infamous Miley moment? Well, I guess you'll just have to watch to find out... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dx-Sy5M3bME
