Why am I obsessed with this Raymond Scott tune?

Apparently, Raymond Scott was also. He recorded it a number of times.

Alas, the video doesn't work. There seems to be a lot of issues with embedding Youtube videos lately.

But I've always been fascinated by Scott, and not only because of the John Williams connection. He's still an unheralded pioneer of electronic music (such as the clip you provided), while also being an icon of big band jazz. In recent years, however, efforts have been made to restore his position in music history - like the wonderful DECONSTRUCTING DAD documentary from 2010 (a must-watch!).
