Legendary Naturalist Sir David Attenborough Narrates the MTV Awards

Dulcet-voiced naturalist Sir David Attenborough has always had a special fondness for mating rituals. So it shouldn’t come as too big a surprise that his narration of Miley Cyrus’s infamous twerking performance at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards is rich with insight, wonder, and a hint of bemusement.

“A kind of dancing,” indeed! Kudos to Wreck & Salvage for tracking down the audio from the one narrator who could make watching this performance a more tolerable experience.

The spectacular wattles of Bulwer’s pheasant, in case you were wondering, actually look like this. And here’s the original footage of the albatross mating dance.
