 There are a few other great videos up that are worth sharing where
 appropriate; Joels video of an 8 and 10-year old repairing a keyboard
 comes to mind.  For those who haven't seen it:

 I feel Sagan's voice in this video would have made a true a deep message:

 I would suggest Sagan's Cosmos and Pale Blue Dot passages for future ads of
 this nature. There are countless great poets out there, no need to fake them

 At first, I didn't want to rain on anyone's parade, but I see others
 feel as I do.  Putting words in someone's mouth without a strong hint
 of parody isn't right.

Parody isn't nessasarily a requirement. The scenes in Forrest Gump where 
they have him meeting with the President isn't parody, but it's very 
clearly fiction, and a very appropriate use of this sort of technology.
