Japan's Tobe Zoo contains lions, as any zoo worth its salt should. But what if the lions escape? That scenario is what employees prepared for this week, resulting in a hilarious video that went viral. They couldn't let loose a *real* lion for obvious reasons, so they made do with someone in a lion suit. The ensuing action was - thank God - filmed and uploaded to the Internet. Guess 2019's not a total wash after all!
The photos alone are priceless, but I'll do you one better:
The clip quickly gained traction online, delighting people the world over. The zoo's actual lions, however, appear nonplussed.
