Orangutan cracks up after seeing magic trick with paper cup

Here’s the best 38 seconds you’ll spend today.

An orangutan at a zoo in Barcelona was on the other side of the glass when a zoo visitor decided to show the critter a magic trick.

Using a paper cup, the visitor shows the orangutan that there’s nothing inside.Screen Shot 2015-12-10 at 11.29.40 AM

He then adds a mysterious item, shakes the cup holding his hand over the top and brings the cup back into view.

Curious, the orangutan tilts his head and watches in anticipation.

When the orangutan realizes there’s nothing inside, it takes a moment for that fact to register.

And then he roars with hysterical laughter.
