The YouTube sensation "The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger" video has generated nearly 35 million views since first being posted last year. But until now, no one has known who exactly was behind the viral video's narration.

TMZ has caught up with the voice in question, though he is still concealing his full identity, choosing to only be identified by the name "Randall." In the video below, Randall explains his motivation behind the honey badger narration.

"I've always had a natural talent for narration, so I figured what better animal to start with than the honey badger. Seriously."

"Because in today's society, I think it's an animal that a lot of people can relate to. I think a lot of people want to be able to take what they want. And I believe firmly, and Harvey [Levin] can tell you this, everyone, inside of them, has a honey badger just waiting to get out. They don't care, they want to take what they want and now is the time to do it."

So, why is Randall stepping into the spotlight now? TMZ writes:

So, why go public now? Randall's in Hollywood hocking his new book -- yes, the Honey Badger can write too -- and there's even an animated TV show in the works. Guess he really is pretty badass.
