Thank fuck it’s Friday!

We made it through another week—and what better way to celebrate than to watch an utterly adorable orangutan laugh his hairy little ass off at a magic trick?

The orangutan was hanging out in his enclosure at the Barcelona zoo when a member of the public decided to entertain him with an impromptu magic show.

Dan Zaleski from Meriden, Connecticut found a captive audience—literally and figuratively—to appreciate his slight of hand skills, and the ape watched spellbound as he placed something into a styrofoam cup, and then…. Abra Cadabra!…after a quick shake, opened the lid to reveal an empty cup.

After taking a second or two to process what had happened, the orangutan fell on to his back, laughing hysterically.

Zaleski uploaded the super cute video to YouTube—where, at time of posting, it had racked up a staggering 6.8 million views—he also added a very important message to go along with it:

If you were moved as much as we were, seeing just how similar an orangutan is to a human, you can help save our cousins from extinction in the wild by supporting conservation work.

The Orangutan Foundation International (OFI) is a leading conservation organization in the Borneo, and your donations could help. Please consider donating here: https://orangutan.org/donations/

And, sadly, statistics show that orangutans really need all the help they can get.

Both species of the great ape—the Sumatran and the Bornean—is considered to be endangered, and under threat of extinction, due to poaching, habitat destruction and the illegal pet trade.

The Sumatran is under the most imminent danger, and is considered to be critically endangered—their population has declined by 80% in 75 years.

The Bornean orangutan population has declined by 50% in the past 60 years.
