Dancing bears steal show on Planet Earth II

first_imgThe bears were scratching themselves on trees, but it looked like they were dancing Jungle Book-style.Amusingly, the producers soundtracked the spectacle with Jungle Boogie.The Planet Earth team introduce the clip by saying: “We set up remote cameras in the Canadian Rockies hoping to film grizzly bears.“We got more than we bargained for…”The footage delighted viewers, who took to Twitter to express how much the clip amused them: Thanks to Ed Balls for making me smile for the first time in days. #Strictly https://t.co/kXkpmi4S9Z— David Schneider (@davidschneider) November 12, 2016 This Planet Earth sequence of bears scratching on trees is the greatest thing ever committed to film.— Stephen McGill (@steve_mcgill) November 14, 2016 This video of the bears on Planet Earth in ecstasy while scratching their backs is what the world needs right now. https://t.co/RRfxM3gMlq— Jim Waterson (@jimwaterson) November 13, 2016 Does that bear have more rhythm than #edballs?? Same joyous effect though 😆 #planetearth2— Helen Lazarus (@LazarusLife) November 13, 2016 Either way, both should perhaps watch out: later on in the show, the limelight was almost stolen by a splendidly ridiculous troupe of marching flamingos, seen “dancing on ice” and conducting a bizarre synchronised mating parade. BBC1 Planet Earth 2 ….. Flamingos on Ice!! #laughing 😆— Ruth Bennett (@1968Bennett) November 13, 2016  Twitter users realised the bears were the Ed Balls of Planet Earth II. That bear has better moves that Ed Balls #planetearth2— helen kirk (@minxsterev) November 13, 2016 The flamingos on Planet Earth 2 have just made me so happy.— Nadine (@NadineBloxsome) November 13, 2016 Omg. This bear is as good as Ed Balls on Strictly. #planetearth2— Becki Hawkes (@Becki_Hawkes) November 13, 2016 That back-scratching bear on #planetearth2 moves like #edballs on #strictly!— GlassHalfSomething (@Natlazenby) November 13, 2016 I think that @edballs could take a tip or two from the bear on #planetearth2 #StrictlyComeDancing— Rob Bridges (@guerrillaHR) November 13, 2016 The bears on Planet Earth dance like me at Dirty disco— Iceblast Queen (@BeaMcIntosh) November 14, 2016 Some viewers were convinced that Balls, who has solidly improved since the first Strictly shows but is still at the bottom of the judges’ leader board, could learn a thing or two from the hip-swinging bears. Others, however, felt that the former Labour MP and Shadow Chancellor still had the edge. Could the bear and Balls could perform a duet together? Or – even better – a dance off? That bear’s got nothing on @edballs #planetearth2— Richard Baker (@BakeronBusiness) November 13, 2016 The second episode of Planet Earth II left viewers amazed and delighted by the beauty of our world.It also made them laugh – as the stars of the show were dancing grizzly bears, which could give Strictly’s Ed Balls a run for his money.The new BBC documentary, narrated by David Attenborough, aired on Sunday night and included parading flamingos as well as the grizzly bears. Many people enjoyed watching  Ed Balls and his dance partner Katya Jones perform a Salsa to Gangnam Style on Strictly Come Dancing – and thought, watching the bears on Sunday, that he may have met his match. Planet Earth II is on BBC One on Sundays at 8pm.last_img
