Netflix gremlins see Aziz Ansari subtitles upstage David Attenborough as narrator of Planet Earth

A subtitles juxtaposition

A Reddit user shared bizarre scenes after subtitles from an Aziz Ansari stand-up gig overlapped BBC’s Planet Earth following a minor Netflix glitch.

Reddit user benmeiri84 posted a slew of images to Imgur spreading the resulting hilarity that encompasses nature documentary Planet Earth when melded with Ansari subtitles - discussing everything ranging from masturbation to Biggie Smalls and Tupac’s faked deaths.

The resulting accident could be sold on as a feature by Netflix judging by the reception to benmeiri84’s post. Here are a few standout images.

Ansari remains a lynchpin of Netflix’s comedy output (unless you count those Adam Sandler films?). Some Reddit users suggested the stunt was orchestrated by the company in an effort to promote Ansari's Netflix exclusive ‘Live at Madison Square Garden’.

A friend was watching some BBC nature show on Netflix, and a glitch on Netflix cause it to have Aziz Ansari's stand up special's subtitles.
