Animators take on oil prices using rhymes and backup dancers

From the irreverent animators that brought you the viral video of Tiger Woods’ worst day ever, we now have a rapping Average Joe who debates oil and gas prices spikes with his scantily clad backup dancers.

Don’t roll your eyes, oil geeks. Joe and the gals get into some pretty heavy issues. The video explains — in rhyme — why oil prices are affected by the dollar’s value, conflict in oil-producing countries and the growing energy demands of the Chinese.

While all-American Joe argues for more offshore drilling, the ladies explain that oil is a fungible commodity and argue for Pigovian taxes.

Warning: Average Joe uses some four-letter words, so this clip isn’t child-friendly or safe for work.
