Netflix Glitch Subtitles Aziz Ansari over BBC Nature Doc, Hilarity Ensues

Not the voice you'd expect animals to have

Everyone makes mistakes but this one has us in stitches. Whoever’s job it is to caption documentaries over at Netflix made a mistake so perfect, you could say it improved the original film.

Rather than using subtitles from narrator extraordinaire David Attenborough for a BBC nature doc, a Redditor discovered that lines from Aziz Ansari’s latest stand-up special were being shown instead. Similar to Snoop Dogg’s Planet Snoop, the contrast between imagery of animals and Aziz’s NSFW special makes for some of the funniest television screen caps we’ve ever seen.

Seeing as Ansari’s latest special debuted on Netflix (alike his pop-culture phenomenon show Master of None), it’s also likley that this is the sneakiest and smartest marketing ploy we’ve seen in a while. What do you think? Take a look for yourself below:
