Gorilla Doesn't Appear to Appreciate Introduction

Occurred on October 22, 2022 / Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA

Info from Licensor: "While my wife, two daughters, and I were visiting the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, CO, we were taking photos of the girls in front of the gorilla exhibit. My wife, Amy then switched her iPhone camera from photo to video and told the girls, Arabella (11) and Arianna (9) that she was now videotaping. The gorilla, sitting directly behind the glass that our girls were standing in front of was eating celery. Our youngest daughter, Arianna, began to improvise an introduction of the gorilla to the camera. She said, 'This is Bob...' and at that very moment, 'Bob' turned his face to the camera, raised his hand, and flipped off my daughters! (He was actually just eating, but the gesture of his hand while doing so definitely featured his middle finger.) Our girls and I immediately burst into hysterical laughter. On the way home from the zoo, I edited the video and uploaded it to TikTok."
