Viral Video: Monkey Goes 'Planet of the Apes' on Rude Teen

By Robert Paul Reyes

"CCTV footage from an Indian city shows a teenager receive a lesson in manners from a monkey that reacted violently to being given the middle finger.


The footage, from the city of Shimla, shows the monkey make eye contact with the boy while perched on a fence and the teenager flips the bird to the primate.

The monkey, apparently incensed by the rude gesture, lunges at the teenager`s face and knocks him on his rear before running away."


Now that`s what I call "Instant Karma"!

When I was in the third grade my class took a field trip to the San Francisco Zoo, we all thought it was great fun to make funny faces a the chimps, until one of them flung a handful of crap at us. Since then I`ve treated all simians, whether they`re chimpanzees, gorillas or monkeys, with the utmost respect.

Thank goodness there was no YouTube in the 1960`s; a video of a bunch of third graders covered in feces, and bawling like babies would have gone viral.

This teenager in India learned the same lesson, don`t disrespect a monkey, he might go all Planet of the Apes on you.

This surly teen got what he deserved and the viral capturing his humiliation has gone viral.
