David Attenborough Reads “What a Wonderful World” in a Moving Video

Sir David Atten­bor­ough is Eng­land’s finest nat­ur­al his­to­ry film­mak­er, best known for his Life col­lec­tion, a series of nine nature doc­u­men­taries aired on the BBC between 1979 and 2008. It’s wide­ly con­sid­ered the stan­dard by which all oth­er wildlife pro­grams are mea­sured.

In recent weeks, British and Amer­i­can audi­ences have been treat­ed to Atten­bor­ough’s lat­est pro­duc­tion, Frozen Plan­et (see trail­er below). It’s thought to be his last major pro­gram with the BBC, and to com­mem­o­rate this mile­stone, the ad agency RKCR/Y&R has pro­duced a mov­ing video that fea­tures Atten­bor­ough read­ing lines from “What a Won­der­ful World” — you know, the Louis Arm­strong clas­sic — as scenes from Atten­bor­ough’s doc­u­men­taries fill the screen.

The ad agency intro­duced the video last week with a lit­tle blog post, which con­clud­ed by say­ing: “If you’ve had a shit­ty jour­ney into work today, I promise, this will put your smile back in place.” We could haven’t have said it any worse or bet­ter.

    I’m excit­ed to write about Hen­ry Hack­er, he is a great and bril­liant hack­er who pen­e­trat­ed my spouse’s phone with­out a phys­i­cal instal­la­tion app. And I was able to access my spouse’s phone, SMS, What­sapp, Insta­gram, Face­book, Wechat, Snapchat, Call Logs, Kik, Twit­ter and all social media. The most amaz­ing thing there is that he restores all phone delet­ed text mes­sages. And I also have access to every­thing includ­ing the phone gallery with­out touch­ing the phone.I can see the whole secret of my spouse. Con­tact him for any hack­ing ser­vice. He is also a genius in repair­ing Cred­it Score, increas­ing school grade, Clear Crim­i­nal Record etc. His ser­vice is fast. Con­tact:, Henryclarkethicalhacker@gmail.com.
