You Haven’t Seen Miley Cyrus Twerk Until Sir David Attenborough Narrates It
I know you think you can’t bear even one more second of Miley Cyrus twerking at this year’s recent MTV VMA awards. But that’s because you haven’t seen the recently discovered footage of Sir David Attenborough, the legendary British naturalist and creator of the Life series of documentaries, narrating Cyrus’ intricate dance with Robin Thicke:
So enlightening! I had no idea this was such a nuanced ritual.
OK, as you might have guessed, this is not really narration of the VMA dance. The crazy and hilarious guys at Wreck and Salvage borrowed Sir David’s voice from a BBC documentary capturing the mating habits of albatrosses. (In the original, the sounds of bird calls and beaks clacking are much more prominent.)
On their profile page, Wreck and Salvage describe themselves as “three internet hobos” in widely separated states who “make videos from videos.” Their cheeky tequila commercial spliced together from Michael Imperioli‘s spots for 1800 Tequila is also pretty funny.
But if this were their only video, I think the group would still have proved their comedic genius by doing the unthinkable: making this footage bearable for one more viewing.
