Pretty much everyone has finished an episode of Planet Earth or Blue Planet feeling so high on animals that they're suddenly dead set on sacking it all in and moving to Madagascar to be with the penguins.
That's the power of Attenborough: in one sentence alone he can convince a bunch of bankers, teachers and estate agents into becoming a generation of zookeepers, llama breeders and wildlife photographers...
Well, that is until the credits have finished rolling, by which point you've remembered about that cup of tea that's been brewing and those emails that need answering. That's the dream well and truly forgotten until next week's episode goes out.
But maybe we shouldn't only feel inspired when Attenborough's about. Why not actually act on that love for animals so that you can hang out with a bunch of amazing creatures all day, every day?
Stepping in with a career that could offer up precidely that is Chester Zoo, which is currently looking for a new giraffe and rhino keeper.
Keepers are needed to undertake the daily animal care duties, focusing on husbandry and welfare, with the Chester Zoo website explaining: "We currently have an exciting opportunity for a Keeper to join our hoof stock sections.
"For the right candidate, this post offers a fantastic opportunity to work with a wide variety of mammal species ranging from Black and Greater One Horned Rhinos, Giraffes as well as Grevy's Zebra, Onager and a range of Bovids, Deer and Antelope."
However, before you rush off to apply, there's one (fairly obvious) catch - and that's that you have to be actually qualified for it.
To apply for the role, you need:
The pay is £18,000 ($24,000) per year, which really isn't bad considering your new squad would include giraffes, rhinos and some other ace animals. Imagine the possibilities.
If you're not quite qualified enough, at least you can go back to living vicariously through David Attenborough, thanks to loads of his classic series being on Netflix. Not quite the same, sure, but at least a little bit more achievable...
