Right before a zoo opens, the main attraction—a spectacular gorilla—dies of old age.

Desperate, the zoo owner tells one of his workers to wear a gorilla suit they have in storage.

“We’ll find a new gorilla soon, but we need the money to afford one!” the zoo owner says. “You’ll just have to pretend.”

Soon enough, people are coming from all over to see the amazing human-like gorilla. One day, while impressing the crowd, the man in the gorilla suit climbs too close to the lion’s den next door and falls in.

Terrified, he begins to scream for help.

Suddenly, a lion pounces on the man in the gorilla suit and pins him down.

“Shut the hell up!” the lion says. “You’re going to get us both fired!”
