The face behind the 'Honey Badger' voice

The man who narrates the wildly popular video-gone-viral, "Honey Badger," has a few choice words about the creature itself, which pretty much destroys anything in its path and eats anything it wants (including, ugh, a cobra).

"Because of today's society, I feel it's an animal that I feel a lot of people can relate to ... I think a lot of people are fed up ... a lot of people want to be able to take what they want," he told TMZ in an interview this week.

"And I believe firmly .... that everyone inside of them has an inner honey badger just waiting to get out, they don't care, they want to take want they want and now's the time to do it."

Wow, what a selfless guy (he goes by "Randall"). The timing of the video is likely tied to his new book, a guide to "nasty a-- animals." At least on his own website, he takes a more subdued approach to things:

The more we can learn about other animals, and realize we are not alone on this planet — the better off we can be as both humans and a society as a whole! Now, that being written, this doesn’t mean we have to be all “Debbie Downer” about it — we just need to educate one another and learn what we as individuals and as a nation, can do to treat our wildlife and animals better!

So, it turns out that he does give a .... hoot. Even if Honey Badger doesn't.

(Note, although many of you have seen "Honey Badger," for those who haven't it, it's below, but includes NSFW language and some pretty graphic (and disgusting) animal scenes:
