The They Might Be Giants-like "Good Chemistry" explains chemical bonds via a boy-girl love story, which Cirino wrote, performed and filmed. The animation was created using construction paper. The video got a boost when Cirino's father submitted it on Reddit. Tuesday morning, it was up to 250,000 views on YouTube.
