We may all use a superb cry right about now.
If you’re feeling jaded and cynical from current information, watch the video above and let the empathy of the harmless wash over you, as a gaggle of langur monkeys mourns their lifeless companion.
The grieving primates grew to become connected to a robotic monkey, outfitted with a spy cam for the miniseries Spy in the Wild. The eerily real looking robot breaks after one monkey’s babysitting makes an attempt go terribly improper. The langurs freak out, in a lot the identical manner you would if your niece dropped a baby she’d insisted on holding.
The monkeys conclude the robot baby is lifeless and proceed to assemble round it, holding one another tenderly in grief. Severely, have the Kleenex close by for this one.
Spy in the Wild, a collaboration between BBC, PBS, and THIRTEEN Productions, will premiere Feb. 1 with hidden digital camera footage of unique animals. If this teaser is any indication, it’s going to be an actual tear-jerker.
