An iPhone owner found that the bond shared by Apple fans even extends between species when he met an iPhone-loving gorilla during a recent trip to Louisville Zoo in Kentucky.

Separated by safety glass from one of our closest living relatives, the visitor decided to show Jelaini the gorilla photos of other gorillas — leading to an astonishing video in which Jelaini appears completely transfixed by the images.

Check it out below:

The video was uploaded to YouTube earlier this week, and has already received more than 530,000 views. It’s pretty amazing stuff — not least the part where Jelaini imitates the movements of the person holding the handset.

And, hey, if less evolved primates can be so easily won over by the magic of iPhones, that surely bodes well for another influx of ex-Android converts following tomorrow’s iPhone 6s event.
