Blue whale shows an unlikely knack for comic timing (Video)

Water surprise...

Tom Victor

This is the animal kingdom’s ‘Del Boy falling through the bar’ moment.

A BBC broadcaster saw his lament about not being able to find a single blue whale interrupted by…a blue whale.

We’d like to think the aquatic mammal was steeling itself, waiting underwater for the duration of the piece-to-camera just so it could pounce at the perfect time for maximum hilarity.

It might be time to give the Omid Djalili of the ocean its own sitcom.
