Oldie but Goodie: A Mariachi Band Serenades a Beluga Whale (VIDEO)


It’s Friday! Our American readers are heading into a three-day weekend, and our Canadian readers are coming off a four-day week. I think it’s safe to say nobody’s really giving it 110 percent today.

So, since you’re probably not terribly committed to keeping your productivity high or making sure all the TPS reports have the new coversheets put on them before they go out, why not kick back and watch a video with us? We promise we won’t tell your boss.

Let’s go back in time to the year 2011. It was a simpler time, and the Internet was a simpler place. Grumpy Cat wasn’t even born yet. We hadn’t yet been treated to the KONY 2012 debacle. GIF wasn’t the Oxford American Dictionary’s Word of the Year.

And one of the strangest, sweetest, most inexplicably calming videos on the whole wide Interweb was this video of a mariachi band serenading a beluga whale.

Why was this mariachi band serenading a beluga whale, you ask? While there is a reason, it’s actually better if you don’t know. Just be like the beluga and let the music wash over you.
