Monkeys sees magic trick and earn 66M views for their hilarious reactions

October 22nd, 2020

We put on the look of disbelief and surprise after someone shows us a seemingly impossible magic trick. Us humans have different reactions when we witness magic before our eyes, and we are often shocked in amazement. However, even animals would surely do the same when shown something unusual, especially monkeys who closely resemble our reactions.

We have probably seen plenty of monkey’s reactions towards magic tricks on the internet.

It just happened that someone put those together and uploaded the compilation on YouTube, making it convenient for us to see different clips in just one video. The compilation racked up more than 66 million views on YouTube ever since it was uploaded in 2017. It just shows that until now, a lot of people still enjoy watching monkeys’ humane reaction towards magic tricks.

These were the first old clips that most people have come across on the internet.

The first clip was way back in 2016 where a zoo-dweller showed a simple magic trick to a baboon. The baboon never acknowledged the girl at first but after she pulled the magic trick, the baboon slapped the glass pane shockingly when he saw the object disappeared in front of his eyes.

The same thing happened in a different zoo where the baboon fixed its gaze on the card that the man was putting in front of his face. The genuine reaction that the baboon showed after the card disappeared and reappeared was just simply priceless.

Baboons are not the only ones that show this puzzled reaction.

An orangutan in the Barcelona zoo has been bamboozled as well after a man showed him sleight of hand with a cup and a little fruit. The moment the orangutan saw how the object disappeared inside the cup, he hilariously fell on the floor with disbelief. The orangutan came back up hoping to see something more interesting.

In another clip, a magician appeared to entertain an old orangutan with an impossible card trick. Even for us, it was mind-boggling. The orangutan was puzzled about how the card passed through his glass and he tried to solve the mystery himself.

The last clip was from a magician named Simon Pierro.

Simon Pierro is a famous magician that mainly uses iPad tricks to bamboozle his victims. As he usually shows his tricks in front of people, he decided to switch to a few chosen chimpanzees namely Jenny, Andy, Mona, and Simon as his audience for a day.

He showed each of them different iPad magic tricks such that include their favorite snack – peanuts – as well as milk. They all have shown genuine reactions after seeing such unbelievable magic tricks. In the end, one of them came up to Pierro to thank him for the snacks and the entertaining magic tricks with a big hug.

Science has pointed out a lot of our similarities with monkeys.

It is always interesting how similar we are to the monkeys. Ever since Charles Darwin laid out his theory of evolution, many have thought that we evolved from apes.

However, that was immediately disproved and marked as a misunderstanding after someone pointed out that humans are not exactly in line with the monkeys, but they only have similarities since monkeys and humans descended from the same long-extinct ancestor.
