Orangutan loses it after watching a simple magic trick

While visiting a zoo, a guy decided to amuse a rather curious orangutan in his enclosure by performing a basic magic trick in front of him. The trick involves a styrofoam cup and some kind of blossom. In goes the blossom, up and down goes the cup in a rigorous shake, and… oh! Where did that blossom get to?

The orangutan doesn’t seem too amused by the magic trick while it’s happening, but when he sees that the cup is now empty — he cracks up laughing and falls to the ground. Definitely one of the most heartwarming vids of the year.
