As soon I saw a video on Grist of a young deer playing in a mud puddle, I knew there was something missing.

"Yakety Sax."

"Yakety Sax" makes everything better and didn't disappoint me here. Take a minute and see (and hear) for yourself.

Step one: Start the "Yakety Sax" video below.

Step two: Play the video of the deer playing in the mud and watch it full screen with "Yakety Sax" playing in the background. Enjoy!

Any suggestions on other soundtracks that would work? Leave a link in the comments.

Sometimes we forget that play is not a phenomenon unique to humanity.
