Want to know why this video has over 27 million views? Because it’s funny! This is just a funny, funny video. This clip, “Alan!.. Alan!.. Steve!” from the BBC show Walk on the Wild Side still makes us laugh. Talking animals. Tough to beat that in terms of comedy.
We’ve all done this with our pets. We’ve given our dogs and cats their own voices and it’s hilarious. Well, when you take clips from animal documentaries and let some talented voiceover people have a go at it? Even better.
Side note: It’s also better because of the English accents. There. I said it. Something about the “stiff upper lip” crowd getting down and dirty with some talking animals just makes it a liiiiiiitle better. Enjoy.
