    You May Never Be Able To Sleep Again After Listening To Whales Sing O Canada

    Return to the sea, children of the land.

    For Canada Day, Newfoundland & Labrador Tourism released a video of whales "singing" O Canada.

    Whales, of course, don't sing. The creators actually edited together vocalization sounds and added some music. It's meant to be a celebration of Canada and of the whales that congregate in the waters near Newfoundland.

    The result is haunting and maybe even a little unsettling.

    Like the whales are calling us to return to sea.

    To dance with them in the cold, dark depths.

    Whales have no need for our human concepts of patriotism.

    They know only the embrace of the great abyss from whence we came.
