What Is A Higgs Boson?

This is a rather informative and concise (and short) video out of Fermilab explaining, in simple terms, what a Higgs boson is (and what a Higgs field is). This would be something appropriate for the general public.

I wish they had done this sooner, certainly at the height of all that frenzy with the LHC. Still, better late than never, and the explanation is simple enough that those without any physics background can have some idea on what it is.
