Belated Sunday Night Video: F*** Planet Earth

Now a video titled Fuck Planet Earth could be taken in many different ways, but in this case, it is the simplest explanation that is at the heart of things. You see, there was a BBC series called Planet Earth, created and narrated by David Attenborough, and well, it asks the question, what would animals be like if they could talk like humans... well, what if animals could talk like characters from a David Mamet play blended with some Tarantino... minus all the pithy character developing dialogue between expletives.


It certainly is an interesting take on the narrative nature of this very entertaining series. I don't know how Attenborough feels about this appropriation of his team's footage, but I certainly think it has some charms.

Hooo boy! Was that hilarious! That was one of the funniest things I have ever seen! That is probably really what the animals say-if they could talk!!

To me, the lion is the centerpiece of the whole video.
