Spy in the Wild’s animatronic bear is a lot funnier than it should be

The BBC’s nature programme Spy in the Wild is filmed partly through the “eyes” of animatronic creatures placed near real animals in the hope of capturing close-up shots because they’re less threatening than an obvious camera.

Here’s a good look at the baby gorilla spy.

One hidden camera, however, caught people’s attention for the wrong reasons.

One clip, shared by Elly-Mae Gadsby, demonstrated better than anything the hilarious problem with the fake bear.

We tip our hats to all involved, but even they must admit that that’s a wonderful bit of accidental comedy right there.
