Dropping your sunglasses sounds like bad luck, but in the case of a young woman visiting the orangutan exhibit at an Indonesian zoo, it turned into a once-in-a-lifetime lucky moment to record an orangutan trying her sunglasses on.
The original uploader said:
We were at a zoo called Taman Safari in Indonesia on March 28th and at 1 pm we went to look at the orangutans. I leaned over to look at a mom and child on the bottom of the enclosure and my sunglasses fell off my head and onto the grass below. Then, as you see in the video, the mom picks them up and starts to wear them. Finally, we called the zookeepers because we were worried she might harm herself with them somehow and so he traded her the sunglasses for a bundle of leaves.
Let’s hope this doesn’t lead to a bunch of knuckleheads throwing sunglasses to zoo animals on purpose! And she missed a chance to say “you’re just an overgrown orangutan.” Oh well!
