During a recent trip to the Barcelona Zoo in Spain, Dan Zaleski decided to entertain the resident orangutan with a magic trick. In the video, the orangutan is seen carefully observing the Connecticut resident as he places a chestnut inside a Styrofoam cup, seals it with a lid and then shakes it vigorously.

Zaleski then magically makes the chestnut 'disappear' by taking the cup out of the mammal's sight for a brief second and dumping its contents on the ground. The smart orangutan ponders over the empty cup for a short second before rolling over the floor in laughter!

The mammal's joyous reaction to the 'magic' trick is guaranteed to put a smile on anyone's face. It is no wonder that the video has garnered over ten million views since it was uploaded on YouTube on December 7th.
