When someone performs a magic trick for us, we usually respond by staring in amazement, boredom or just clapping politely — but not this animal.
A video of an orangutan reacting to a magic trick has gone viral.
Connecticut native Dan Zaleski visited the Barcelona Zoo and dazzled an orangutan with a simple disappearing trick with a Styrofoam cup and a small object that appears to be a cherry.
The ape’s reaction is priceless. After Zaleski performs the trick and shows the orangutan the empty cup, he rolls on the floor with uncontrollable laughter.
Just as the orangutan can’t stop laughing, we can’t stop watching. Since the video was posted to YouTube last week, it has gone viral with almost 7 million views.
In a Facebook post, Zeleski said he performed the trick a few times, but this was his best reaction. The world may agree with him on that.
