The video of the chimp with the AK-47 is better.

Good Evening Charles,
Yeah, just slightly disturbing whether the truth or fake.

That's totally racist, but it would be totally racist for me to tell you why.

Chimps throw sticks around in very much the same way. They also beat the ground with short, heavy sticks just for fun. They also attack the occasional enemy or prey using that "clubbing" motion perfected by all higher primates, in which the thumb orients and stabilizes the stick, and the palm grips the stick in a downward facing direction; the resulting clubbing motion is unique to apes and hominids, and may very well have been the key to our success as hunters.

No doubt the teenage chimp found a tool with some unique-feeling balance and weight characteristics, and was experimenting with it (and playing a little game by himself). They're very smart, curious creatures with superb exploratory abilities, especially of hand-extensions (e.g., "tools"). Please don't look at his use of the machete as imitative of how a human being would use it, or of how it is used in war.
He's just a bored teenager that found a cool shiny thing in the forest.

Had I listened to the soundtrack in the first place, I would have known this was manufactured.

Charles. Why are you using your column to advertise a stupid movie?
