This video of a chimp scrolling through Instagram is incredible

Touch screen technology is so easy to use

If the Planet of the Apes movies turn out to be true, and the primates do rise up to overthrow us, this chimp will probably be their leader.

A video is being shared online of it using Instagram on a smartphone. Despite not being a human, it scrolls through it with like a true millennial.

It flips through the timeline, selects posts to view, and even watches a video of another chimp. Doesn’t post any selfies though.

The video has been posted by Mike Holton, an animal fan who goes by the handle therealtarzan – though it is not clear when and where it was recorded.
