This video is a true testament to the brainpower of chimpanzees. At Welsh Mountain Zoo in the United Kingdom, one chimpanzee tried to convince visitor Alex Bailey of Manchester to set him free. In fact, the primate even demonstrated how to open the enclosure. The chimp first got the man’s attention by going up to the glass and showing him how to unlock the door trapping him inside. I’m not going to lie, I don’t think I would have been able to resist trying to help this persuasive little guy.
To see the encounter for yourself, check out the video above.
