Some genius at the Irish restaurant review Facebook page Lovin Dublin has dubbed Sir David Attenborough’s wildlife commentary over Pokemon Go - and it’s as awesome as that sounds.

Snippets of the voice of revered British naturalist and BBC wildlife commentator were laid over footage of someone playing the augmented reality game, and we're not surprised the result has become a viral hit.

In the video, Attenborough’s deep baritone and lulling cadences provide detailed documentary-styled insights into each Pokemon character's behaviour patterns.

“It is, of course, a bird,” says Attenborough, as the video closes in on a Spearow.

“Bats, with their fluttering zigzag flight, are not easy targets," Attenborough makes an astute observation about the flip-flapping Zubat Pokemon, which players of the game know to be a notoriously difficult catch.

Once the Zubat is caught, however, “That is one bat that will not return to the roost tonight.”

Of course, this isn’t the first time Attenborough has been dubbed over juxtaposing footage - his voice has provided comedy to hooligan gang fights and video of drunken people in bars. In hindsight, with the soaring popularity of Pokemon Go, it was only a matter of time someone would come up with this brilliant move. We love it.
