Return of the Planet of the Apes

YouTube of a Bali Monkey Doing a 'Selfie' Goes Viral


(2/28/2014)

GoPro promotes itself at the World’s Most Versatile Camera, with the slogan:

Wear it. Mount it. Love it.”

And after an incident last week at Uluwatu Temple in South Bali, GoPro may be adding

“Monkey around with it”

to their slogan pitch.

The many visitors to Bali’s famous cliff-side temple of Uluwatu are all warned of the risk of losing eye glasses, pens, jewelry and cameras to the naughty and sometimes aggressive sacred monkeys who make their home there.

Notorious for absconding with anything that they can get their hands on, the monkeys have taken thousands of dollars in costly personal items from visiting tourist, sometimes never to be seen again.

Recently a visitor to Uluwatu set his GoPro $500 camera on a temple wall to make a “selfie” of himself feeding the monkeys. Seconds later, the man’s camera was gone, taken by a monkey who was doing its own “selfies” as it dashed through the nearby jungle.

A lady who worked at the temple saved the day by coaxing the monkey to surrender the camera back to the tourist in exchange for a piece of fruit.

The camera needed new batteries to be put back into good operating condition. To everyone's delight, the film captured by the monkey cameraman was epic.

Seeing is believing. Watch the show on Youtube!
