David Attenborough can give gravitas to any video

(CBS News) I think most of you will probably be familiar with Sir David Attenborough, but for those who are not he is a British broadcaster widely known for his narration of nature series and has a sonorous voice that can literally give any situation gravitas. Just watch the above video to see what I mean.

So while I laughed watching the tortoise and the shoe video the first time, the second time made me really want to see that tortoise succeed in his rather scandalous venture.  Go, tortoise, go!

The amusing appearance by Attenborough occurred recently on the BBC's "The Graham Norton Show", a talk show which is well-known for its excellent mixture of comedy and celebrities. To check out more from "The Graham Norton Show", you can visit the show's website by clicking here.
