Turns out it doesn't take much to monkey around with an orangutan.
That much is clear in a YouTube video posted Monday that's already been seen by over 500,000 people, according to TODAY. In it, an orangutan from the Barcelona Zoo cracks up over a simple magic trick.
In user Dan Zaleski's video, the orangutan watches with interest as a man places a nut in an empty cup. When he sneakily slips the object out of the cup and shows the monkey there's nothing inside again, the monkey rolls over laughing, like the zoo resident were at a taping of "Saturday Night Live."
