Video of the day: Even orangutans like a good magic trick

A little magic goes a long way in the case of an adorable orangutan who can't control his excitement and astonishment after seeing an object disappear before his eyes. The LOL moment was filmed at a zoo in Barcelona. With the great ape watching on, the zoo patron shows him that the cup contains what appears to be a chestnut, then gives the cup a good shake and hides it behind his legs for a moment. He gives it one final shake and puts it down in front of the orangutan. Taking off the lid, the man shows his new friend that the cup is now empty, which results in the animal falling over in disbelief. Watch the must-see moment below!
