A video of monkey wearing a face mask has gone viral on social media including Twitter.

It appears that the new norm of wearing masks as a result of COVID-19 has caused monkeys to reflect on the situation as well. A monkey can be seen wearing a black face mask on the road in a rib-tickling video that has gone viral on social media.

The video has been viewed over 30,000 times. Thousands of people have shared it. Internet users have admired the monkey’s inquisitive nature.

The video was shared by Rex Chapman, an American former professional basketball player and social media influencer.

“If you’ve already seen a monkey find a mask and promptly put it on its face today then just keep on scrolling…” Chapman wrote with the video.
