Mathematical Pi

Mathematical Pi (o American π), es un videoclip de animación con una letra divertida sobre el número Pi. Está escrito sobre la música del clásico American Pie de Don McLean, y se aprovecha del juego de palabras pi-pie. Está en inglés, pero es suficiente para pasar un buen rato.

A long long time ago,
long before the super bowl and things like lemonade.
The Hellenic Republic was full of smarts.
And a question resting on the Grecian hearts was “What is the circumference of a circle?”
But they were set on rational numbers.
And it ranks among their biggest blunders.
They worked on it for years.
And confirmed one of their biggest fears.
I can’t be certain if they cried when irrationality was realized.
But something deep within them died.
The day
They discovered… Pi

They were thinking
Pi, pi, mathematical pi.
