In a hilarious accident over the weekend, Netflix accidentally used subtitle from Aziz Ansari's comedy show over a nature documentary and one eagle-eyed Redditor took screen shots of the whole thing.

Reddit user benmeiri84 shared the screen shots from BBC's Planet Earth, during which "a glitch" caused the subtitle swap, bringing in lines from Ansari's Live at Madison Square Garden instead of David Attenborough's commentary.

The error has since been fixed, and Netflix is laughing the whole thing off.

They posted a response to Twitter which said: "Fun fact: @azizansari's inner monologue is actually David Attenborough", and was accompanied by a short clip of scenes from Ansari's hit series Master of None with Planet Earth subtitles.
