You’ve seen how people react to magic tricks, but have you seen how an ORANGUTAN reacts?[1] It’s precious and absolutely priceless.



Do you believe in magic?

One Orangutan[4] at the Barcelona Zoo most certainly does after a brush with a visitor left him doubled over in laughter and amazement.

It all started when Dan Zaleski[5], who was visiting the zoo, decided to show the orangutan a simple trick with a styrofoam cup and a disappearing ball[6]. Zaleski places the ball in the cup and caps it with the lid before picking it up and shaking it around, slyly removing the ball while the cup is out of of the orangutan’s field of vision. When he reopens the cup, hilarity ensues.

Someone captured the adorable moment on camera, and uploaded the video to YouTube on Monday. Since posting, the video has been viewed over 3 million times.

If only we could maintain that level of innocence and wonder throughout our whole lives, something tells me we’d all be much, much happier people.
