Discovered by Reddit user bakkouz, the video shows Neil deGrasse Tyson's articulate, now-famous answer to the question of who the greatest physicist in history is—just 100 percent slowed down. Turns out, it's a lot harder to pay attention to the heartfelt response when Tyson can barely keep his eyes open.

You can see the original video down here—and you should, it's a great tribute to a brilliant man. But as far as hilarity goes, it doesn't hold a candle to the slurring, droopy-eyed science on Quaaludes version above. Am I rite, Neil?
