I assume Cam was responsible for the equations and that they are something to do with quantum chemistry.

That was a legend of korra reference when cam and kathleen left the room right?

on a side note: all the montages...

One thing I think this video needed was more Montage. Just didn't have enough. :)

He also wanted to do the Korra thing, which was awesome.

I loved it. Such meta. Much montage. Wow. Very funny.

I assume that you guys forgot to film the bit where you actually did math, and so that was the late pickup you mentioned in the email.

I'm going to try learning other things with that music playing and someone filming me skimming books and stuff. I'll let you all know how it goes, but it seems simple enough...

Mega meta montage movie madness! Excellent this is exactly what I thought professional math people do in their off time. Also I have to watch more Korra because I didn't see it, or maybe get it. Either way I have to watch more.
I may not be funny or witty, but that does not make me less strange.

No, it was the shot where they're watching Rocky. We felt it was necessary for the video, and we'd bought the BluRay especially for it.

Well spotted. I'd like to thank a steadicam for making this one better.

Well that was epic, and the music was awesome. I hope we see them again, as two math teachers who have the power of Montage would make a good superhero team.

Can someone please explain the Korra reference?

While I'm sure you just had Paul running that small section of track, I choose to believe that he had to run a full lap for each take. And also that you guys suddenly had random, minor problems (speck of dust on lens, there was a bug waaaaay in the background, etc.) requiring an ungodly number of takes.

I tried. With a crappy online gifmaker whose images apparently don't work outside their webpage.

Also, I just now realized that all mathematicians wear labcoats.

Presumably they're using the lab coats as sketch comedy shorthand instead of actual protective gear. In my experience, most mathematicians stay far away from anything reactive, corrosive, or otherwise harmful (unless you consider Laplace transforms hazardous) ;)

I was really expecting the stinger to be Paul using his fitness training to knock Cam out instead of bothering with the whole "math" thing...

Why is the date on the website Saturday instead of Monday?

KingKool - possibly cause Saturday is when the early-access people get it.

I am now convinced that Bradley Rains is an actual magician.

I have been thinking about the meaning of the equations on the blackboard. They are to do with time independent quantum mechanics. The ones in the middle are calculating the energy of something. Taken together with the molecule on the far left, I am guessing the equations are about using some sort of approximate method, likely the WKB approximation, to solve the Schrödinger equation in relation to molecular bonds.
