Blooper Reel From PBS' 'Spy In The Wild' Reminds Us That Animals Are Derpy AF

By Travis Greenwood

The struggle is reel.

Such is the takeaway from this hilarious blooper compilation cobbled together by PBS' Spy In The Wild, a five-part miniseries anchored around revealing video of animals in their natural habitats.

The show's secret sauce? All of the footage is captured with "animatronic spy cameras disguised as animals" (which, if we're being honest, sounds like a really fun treatment for a future episode of Westworld).

While the show's conceit is not without a creepy subtext — and this writer can't seem to shake his recurring fever dream visions of treacherous Teddy Ruxpin dolls coming to sentience — you can't argue with the amazing results.

The clip's fails are multitude and they are ~relatable~.
