WATCH: A Musical Tribute to Pantsuits, Spacesuits and the Women Who Move Us Forward

What do Sigourney Weaver and Hillary Clinton have in common? Comedians Katie Goodman and Soren Kisiel have an answer: power suits.

In “Move Some Sh*t Around,” performed by Goodman, they pay musical tribute to Clinton’s historic bid for office through a story about Goodman’s son watching the film Alien—in which Weaver, as Warrant Officer Ripley, dons a spacesuit to defeat an alien invader aboard a spaceship. In the referenced scene, Weaver’s colleagues laugh as she suits up—simply because the thought of a woman taking the lead in a time of distress is funny to them. Goodman’s son is confused by their reaction, and she is heartened to know that he will grow up less likely to question women in spacesuits saving the day—or, similarly, women in pantsuits winning the popular vote in a presidential election.

“Last week, I voted for a woman,” Goodman sings in the video. “A lot of you voted for a woman. And I cried because the chance to vote for a woman had finally come to pass.” She then goes on to mourn Clinton’s loss to noted sexist and alleged serial rapist Donald Trump, asking why although “the world keeps moving forward” it’s “got to move so slowly forward when we move so much sh*t around.”

Watch the video below in celebration of the women everywhere who have “moved some sh*t around” and make things happen.
