A liberal arts education may sell itself but science, well sometimes you just might need to use the age-old college staples: gorgeous young ladies and that drink of choice.

Such seems to be the case for ScienceCopenhagen, the new YouTube channel from the Videoer fra Det Naturvidenskabelige Fakultet, KĂžbenhavns Universitet (translation, the Faculty of Science, the University of Copenhagen).

I suppose we should be offended when sex is used to sell education – but we could not help but smile when we first saw this little gem:

And how about those lyrics:

Do you want a piece of me, my creator, I am your creation??

We couldn’t get a specific translation for cafeen but this sure looks like the classic beer bottle domino line – oh, the lengths a student will go through when he is too tired to hoist his own:

And defying the laws of physics, times three. Yes, we did say times three. And the music, another killer track!

Yep, with the right efforts, it seems you can even sell science. Is anybody in America paying attention?:
