I’ve never been a huge fan of nature documentaries or Azis Ansari’s comedy, but it turns out combining the two together is just straight-up hilarious – and I can’t thank Netflix enough for this fortuitous discovery.

Watching an episode of BBC’s Planet Earth, Redditor BenMeiri84 noticed that instead of using subtitles from the nature documentary itself, Netflix captioned the show with lines from Ansari’s stand-up comedy special ‘Live in Madison Square Garden.’

What followed was a series of amusing accidental nature memes like this one:

… and this one:

… and especially that one:

Though the mix-up obviously came about as a result of a weird glitch in the streaming service, the mashup between the two shows genuinely cracks me up and I wouldn’t mind it happening to me too.

Actually, I sort of wish it does.
