A video of a gorilla running across his compound is generating laughter online.
The video which was posted to Twitter by Zander is entitled ‘When someone is holding the door open for you but you a little far away’.
The feeling seems to have resonated online with the video generating more than 360,000 likes and 100,000 retweets since it was posted on Sunday.
A tweet of a gorilla making an awkward run across his compound is making people laugh
The five-second clip shows the 350lb primate walking quickly behind some bushes
The ape can be seen making his way across his compound but despite trying to run is unable to move particularly quickly
The five second clip sees the primate bounding across his enclosure swinging his arms to-and-fro as if he is rushing to get where he is going.
Of course, when you weigh as much as 350lbs, it’s difficult to get anywhere fast, so it really does look as though the ape is making a run for it – but not really succeeding.
The online comments were equally as amusing with other people interpreting the video in their own unique way.
The original tweet has been shared more than 100,000 times online with Twitter users now adding their original take on the ape’s antics
‘When you have to poop but running is too risky,’ one person wrote.
‘When you speed up to say hello to someone you think you know but slow down and try to act cool after realizing they’re a stranger!’ tweeted another user.
‘Me when a car is waiting for me to cross the street when I’m too damn far away,’ added another.
