This, of course, leads us to Attenborough narrating a tortoise humping a shoe on the Graham Norton show.

Wreck and Salvage also "attenborrowed" old beach footage for a clip about Photosynthesis and the Origin of Life.

This second clip was apparently produced by W&S for MozFest, where they discussed making such silly little remix videos with other mischief makers.

Okay, the tortoise just made me sad.

Is this a double? Jessamyn mentioned it on the latest podcast...

That mention might have been a tangent from the Pixelated Lines cover of Robin Thicke's song, not referencing a post with this video.

So, this is what everyone's been talking about for weeks?

I guess I'm glad to see Beetlejuice hired a stylist.

(The Attenborough soundtrack is perfect.)

This is actually the first time that I have seen the infamous twerking video. Now if Attenborough would give a narration for Two Girls One Cup, I might finally catch up to the rest of the internet.

It's wrong to want Sir David to narrate my encounters with Mrs Primate, right?

I would listen to David Attenborough or Werner Herzog narrating just about anything.

first time I have had the stomach to watch that infamous video. So much nicer with a calm and articulate voice over.

Even imagining something with David Attenborough narration makes it better.

Not long ago, I found some woods porn, which, as you know, is practically extinct in the wild. My friend and I were talking about making a documentary to raise awareness of the plight of this vanishing species. He provided some of David's narration



"Once the woods porn has served its purpose, it is ritualistically and reverently placed back exactly where it was found, silently awaiting the next 3 o'clock bell when is will be visited again, praying that the evening rains abate for one more day."

Odd, I thought there was already an FPP on this video.

Well, speak of the devil, I am fully engrossed in a show about monkeys narrated by Sir Himself right now.
And of course it is the best.


None of them twerk, per se. I also have yet to see any foam fingers, although some are equipped with Nature's own booty shorts, which look quite majestic on them.

One of my most heroic mushroom experiences involved Mr. Attenborough narrating everything I did. It was beyond great.

Sir, I thank you.

JEALOUS.

The closest I got was when a morning DJ from B96 "The Killer B" narrated everything I did.







Turns out that was just my friend Jeff being a major dick.
