This Chimp’s Riding In Style

Posted on September 18, 2009

Meet Pan-kun, a very intelligent chimpanzee who lives in Japan and is known for his appearances on TV shows.

Pan-kun’s televised adventures typically involve learning how to imitate some sort of human activity. In the past, he’s approached such challenges as making noodles, operating a remote-controlled car, and even training with the fire department.

To celebrate his seventh birthday last October, Pan-kun was filmed for the show Shimura Zoo while he learned the basics of riding a Segway. Thankfully, no one was injured in the hilarious experiment, although the daring chimp did have to dive clear a couple times to ensure his own survival.

Right from the start, it’s obvious that Pan-kun has a natural talent for driving the personal transporter forward (at what appears to be full speed, of course), but his inability to stop at first leads him to a couple pretty rough finishes.

Now that, my friends, is what you call a talented monkey!

I am sorry. There is something just not right about a chimp making noodles.Who wants monkey hair in their food.

Ha ha, I'm sure if he can make noodles, then he could also learn how to pick his hairs out of the food!
