Lab Track: Electric Love

We here at the Lab are kind of obsessed with Bob’s Burgers. Amy has dressed as Louise for CONvergence before, and there have been more than a few rumblings of doing a full group cosplay someday.

Today’s track comes straight from an episode of the show’s third season, entitled Topsy. Faced with her teacher’s refusal to accept last year’s volcano project in this year’s science fair, Louise decides to do a project about Thomas Edison — specifically, about Edison’s electrocution of Topsy, a killer circus elephant, in his quest to show the dangers of AC current. As most things do in Bob’s Burgers, the plan for Louise’s science project gets more and more outlandish. Eventually it becomes a musical number about a romance between Edison and Topsy.

A little while after the episode aired, the show released a full music video of the song. It’s amazing. Enjoy.
