Blue Whale Shows Up BBC Presenter With Perfect Comic Timing

This BBC presenter got a shock and a half when he was proved wrong by a blue whale live on camera.

Zoologist Mark Carwardine outlined just how hard filming a nature documentary can be.

After spending the whole day searching for the creatures he said: "It's quite exciting in one way and challenging in another. You know they're here - we just jolly well can't find them!"

Seconds later, a giant blue whale appears sprouting water, obviously enjoying its moment of comedic genius.
