This man showed an orangutan a magic trick and the reaction is precious!


It’s truly amazing sometimes to see how similar humans are to our primate cousins, and nothing shows that more than this viral video of a man showing a young orangutan a magic trick.

At first, the orangutan is intently watching what the man is doing as he very obviously places a lychee in a takeaway cup.

Shaking the cup and sneakily tipping the lychee out, the man then shows the orangutan the empty take away cup – and what happens next is so sweet!

Keep this one handy for when you need a smile!
