Pokemon Go” gets the Sir David Attenborough treatment in a new viral video.

The renowned British naturalist’s wildlife commentary is dubbed over footage of someone playing the augmented reality game in the hilarious clip.

Watch the video here:

“It is, of course, a bird,” Attenborough is mashed up to say about a Spearow, before describing a lizard-like Charmander as a “top predator.”

“Bats, with their fluttering zigzag flight are not easy targets,” he later narrates as a Zubat hovers into view. “That is one bat that will not return to the roost tonight,” he adds after it’s been caught by the player.

The Irish website Lovin Dublin posted the clip to its Facebook page on July 14. It gained major traction online over the weekend and has now garnered more than 2.4 million views. 

Attenborough’s dulcet tones have previously been dubbed over footage of a soccer hooligan brawl and video of drunk people in nightclubs.
