Discovery Channel Song : The World is Just Awesome

I saw this Video on Discovery Channel between the Advertisements. Loved it Completely… Especially the “Boom De Ah Dah” part… πŸ™‚

Two astronauts float in space – voiceover:

Astronaut 1: It never gets old, huh?
Astronaut 2: Nope.
Astronaut 1: It kinda makes you want to…
Astronaut 2: Break into song?
Astronaut 1: Yep

I love the mountains, I love the clear blue skies …

change to a shot of the Millau Viaduct bridge

I love big bridges …

I love when great whites fly …

I love the whole world …
