4th ESO - Going Ape (ii)

Hey, are you a liar? Have you got that instinct to deceive? Here's a new Going Ape video I took from the National Geographic Channel. Do you still think that humans are not so different from apes?


Look at these children, aren't they cute? What do they do? Do they help decorate the cake or not?
Tell me, what was your reaction when you saw the video?

3rd ESO - Where the hell is Matt?

Just watch this really optimistic and strangely moving video.


Someone suggested several things to look for:

0:38 Two crabs getting it on by the rock
0:41 Dog trying to dance like Matt
0:54 A French (or dumb tourist) guy slipping epically in front of Matt
1:09 Guy in on Right is so good at dancing
1:25 Boy in front of camera thrusts twice, if you're into that
1:53 Korean guard wondering why the hell they let this guy in
3:21 Guy/Girl in pink shirt humping water
4:00 COMPLETELY AWESOME GUY DOING SOME WHEELCHAIR MOTIONS!
4:09 Dog wondering what they are doing, and if they have food

Can you suggest further ones? Just drop a comment like the ones above. Your comment must have the following format:

Min:Sec SOMEONE IS DOING SOMETHING. As in the example below:

1:53 Korean guard is wondering why the hell they let this guy in

If you still want more of Matt's videos watch his outtakes. You can see his other videos here.
