The 5-minute trailer for 'Blue Planet II' just dropped. It has Radiohead and it's amazing.

If just the trailer for "Blue Planet II" is this good, I am going to lose my head when the actual show comes out.

The video opens with the dulcet British tones of Sir David Attenborough, which, you know, already makes it amazing. But as the camera zooms over the waves, Attenborough lets the viewer know this is going to be special.

"We've learned so much," says the naturalist. The original "Blue Planet" was amazing, but this is going to be something else altogether. "Take a deep breath," he commands.


And then the soundtrack hits — and oh my lord.

A cadre of strings, piano, and the voice of Thom Yorke, the lead singer of Radiohead, rushes in like a wave as some of the most beautiful images — and, I'm not being hyperbolic here, but every single one could be a painting — play out.

The song is a rework of the band's song "Bloom" off the album "King of Limbs." It was a special collaboration between the band and award-winning "Inception" and "Lion King" composer Hans Zimmer, made specifically for this series.

And we're not even to the dancing yeti crabs, dolphins, or mohawk-sporting fish yet — which, yes, you'll get to see.

"Hey, y'all. So is it out yet?" GIF from BBC America/YouTube.

"New science and new technology allow us to voyage further and deeper than ever before," Attenborough explains, promising to show us things we've never seen before.

The BBC's nature documentaries have consistently shown us some of the most amazing, beautiful, and heartbreaking sights on our planet, helping millions learn about our home and spurring them on to protect wild spaces. And if just the trailer is this good, I can't wait for the real thing.

The series does not have a release date yet, but the trailer promises 2018. Get pumped.

Watch the amazing five-minute trailer below:

Brittany Kinley, a mother from Mansfield, Texas, had a hilarious mom fail her and she's chalking it up to being just another crazy thing that happened in 2020.

When Kinley filled out the order form for her son Mason's kindergarten class pictures, there was an option to have his name engraved into the photos. But Kinley wasn't interested in having her son's name on the photos so she wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" on the box.

Well, it appears as though she should have left the box blank because the computer or incredibly literal human that designed the photographs wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" where mason's name should be.

Funny how a 'new' male problem is a very old problem for women. Amy Poehler explains.

Not many people are brave enough to talk back to the guy who co-created "Chappelle's Show" when he says something kinda clueless. But not many people are Amy Poehler.

Men struggle to comprehend the pressures women feel. The same is true of women!

Gah! We'll never get along.

This conversation between comedian Neal Brennan and Amy Poehler is a pretty good example of how hard it can be to figure life out sometimes.

Neal, the genius who co-created "Chappelle's Show," sat down with Amy for his show "The Approval Matrix." The topic? WHAT are men supposed to be now? Cool? Adorkable? Both? Neither?

In December 2018, The Utah Department of Transportation opened the largest wildlife overpass in the state, spanning 320 by 50 feet across all six lanes of Interstate 80.

Its construction was intended to make traveling through the I-80 corridor in Summit County safer for motorists and the local wildlife.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that there were over 100 animal incidents on the interstate since 2016, giving the stretch of highway the unfortunate nickname of "Slaughter Row."
