video: ‘Planet Earth’ narrated by kids
I love me some nature documentaries, be they heartwarming or heartbreaking and truth be told, it was catching sight of “Planet Earth” on Blu-Ray in an electronics store that really got me wanting to buy an HDTV. I’m also a big fan of ones narrated by (Sir) David Attenborough.1 Something about his love of nature really comes through in his reading. I have not been a fan of when they’ve opted for American actors to re-record the narration for various documentaries on US networks (Oprah Winfrey, Sigourney Weaver, Alec Baldwin, etc.) because I don’t see why they should change anything, Attenborough is perfect.
However, these kids might change my mind…
Per Boing Boing:
Director Joe Sabia has created this adorable spot for BBC America’s natural history series Planet Earth. In the promo, a series of 4-7 year old children take the place of series narrator David Attenborough—or, as he is known here, “Dabud Abunburble.” You may well die of cute.
But the kids are much cuter. Alternate audio track for the Blu-Ray, anyone? :green:
1 Though I will make an exception for Earthflight narrated by David Tennant. *swoon*
