This orangutan’s reaction to a magic trick will make your day better
This is just wonderful, an orangutan’s reaction to a magic trick which really is guaranteed to make your day better.
Wait for it, wait for it …
Comedian/magician Pete Firman has posted this rather joyful video of an orangutan enjoying some close up magic.
Every now and then it’s nice to remember this Orangutan’s reaction to some sleight of cup.pic.twitter.com/V5g2N9Azdw

Love it! And here are just a few of the things people said about it.
There is nothing as pure as this. https://t.co/1vXa9605ZQ

You might all find this charming but the truth is that he’s a conman and cheated the orang utan out of thirty quid. Not so funny now is it. 😞

He’s laughing because while the human is performing the trick, the Orangutan’s mate has just stolen his car from the zoo car park.

This might well be the best thing I’ve ever seen.

There were also lots of people with concerns about the orangutan’s well-being.
Gorgeous animal. Just wish it was free.

But this seems a fair point (we hope).
A lot of orangs in captivity are rescued young orphans from the wild, usually after the mother is killed. They wouldn’t survive in the wild so this is the best place for them (as long as they’re looked after properly)
