PopMash - Shakin' Stephen Hawking

Although I would say it is wrong to make fun of disabled people, it is especially wrong to make fun of someone that is both disabled and a national treasure. That treasure would be Sir Stephen Hawking (Before you complain, I am aware that he is not a "Sir" but I am making the point that I believe he should have been made one years ago!).

However, the following video is a short cartoon from the Popmash team that have put Stephen Hawking into the setting of a Shakin' Stevens song, and I don't think it's too distasteful. So far, only The Simpsons have managed to portray Prof. Hawking without focussing on his disability , so it is nice to see that the PopMash guys have managed to do the same.
