Someone Made A David Attenborough Parody Of 'Bin Chickens' And It's Magnificent

A truly beautiful look at these terrible birds.

You either love them or you're a sensible person: The Ibis, affectionately known as the "Bin Chicken" has now gotten the David Attenborough treatment with a "Planet Earth" parody.

The man behind the video, David Johns, explained that he was a big fan of Attenborough and the "Planet Earth" series, so he and his friends thought they could do their own wildlife filmmaking, "using the most disgusting bird".

The video, shot by Johns and his friends, captures the true spirit of one of the most maligned birds in Australia as they scavenge the city and devour a "cocktail of burnt tobacco, chicko rolls and bin-juice".

Johns is no stranger to these brilliantly funny videos, as the man behind the viral #BuyMyBarina short where he created a sleek car commercial for his 1999 Holden Barina.
