Fauna: BBC's 'Planet Earth' Narrated by Kids

The epic nature series gets an adorable twist with new voiceover by children. 

In today's "Friday Fauna" selection, the BBC's epic nature series gets an adorable twist with new voiceover by children. They begin by sticking to the script but get increasingly silly. One four-year-old goes on a tangent immediately: "Lizards are hungry! Ew! What is he eating? I'll never eat a fly -- I like cheeseburgers!" The clever remix was created by Joe Sabia, a master of the viral video format. Don't miss his "History of Lyrics That Aren't Lyrics" and interview with the Atlantic Video channel
