Sir David Attenborough Narrates Video of Turtle Mounting Shoe

With his smooth, dulcet voice, Sir David Attenborough was the perfect choice as narrator for the BBC's monumental and award-winning Life series, which details the beauty and savagery of our natural world. The admired actor/author/narrator/broadcaster and naturalist is one of the world's most respected individuals, with a host of awards and accolades to his credit.

But during an appearance on the Graham Norton Show on the BBC, the affable host had other plans on how to use Sir David's highly distinctive voice! Showing a cute viral video of a poor unsuspecting turtle named Toby trying to mate with a gray Croc shoe left in the grass, he had the venerable Attenborough narrate the action sequence, to squeals of laughter from the audience, the host as well as fellow guest Cameron Diaz (who openly flirted with the 86-year-old Attenborough).

 "As the humble tortoise gently mounts his chosen mate," Sir David intones, "and in a dance as old as time itself, it rears its head and emits the mighty mating call,” as poor old Toby gets all exhausted and spent with absolutely no pay-off. You can watch the hilarity in the video below:
