The World Is Just Awesome

So, yeah, this is an ad for cable television network. I still find it really fun to watch.

Question: who’s the guy singing, “I love arachnids”? It looks like Liev Schreiber, but I’m thinking that’s not right. Any Discovery Channel fans out there? (For that matter, the guy with the rocket launcher looks like Howie Mandel, but I’m thinking that’s also probably not right.)

    The arachnids guy is the guy from Man vs. Wild, Bear Grylls – I think.

    Yep, that’s Bear Grylls! Who knew he could sing? Love-love-LOVE that Stephen Hawking was in there!

    Most of the singers were ACTUALLY singing with the melody. However, Stephen H. sang so briefly that it’s perhaps digitally added. With that level of participation you could add JFK, “I love the hot debates.”
    One stupid question: What’s the song title?

    As mentioned by others, the singer of “I love arachanids” is Bear Grylls of “Man vs. Wild.” The guy with the grenade launcher is Richard Machowicz of “Future Weapons.” Also, Stephen Hwking can’t speak–let alone sing–his “voice” is provided by a synthesizer.
    Go here: for the breakdown of who sings what.
    And, by the way, the is one of the best comercials ever.
