This Viral Video Of A Monkey Washing Clothes Puts Us All To Shame

How many of us wash our clothes by hand? Scratch that - how many of us have ever washed our clothes by hand? I'm betting that the answer is close to zero (especially if you're a millennial). Judging by the fact that you're reading this now, you've probably got access to utilities more necessary than the internet, i.e. a washing machine. So what's the big deal? The big deal is that there's a monkey in India that can wash clothes way better than you can. And monkeys don't even wear clothes (well, not naturally). How does that make you feel?

The Japanese snow monkey or the Japanese macaque is a symbol of Japanese folklore and a visit there is a must on any trip to Japan. The park was established in 1952 after WWII when the monkeys were going down from the mountain to the farm fields to eat the crops. There wasn't enough food for humans at the time so the city set up this park to attract them to the other side. Video producer John Daub of the series Only in Japan spent a day working at a Park, specifically the Takasakiyama Natural Zoological Garden on the Kyushu Island city Õita, Japan. Daub accompanied the park workers as they travelled up into the mountains and over to the hot springs where these adorable macaques congregate. Daub learns that these native primates are hungry little critters who will travel far into town for food if they miss their dinner.
