Watch: Video of Ubud monkey pantsing tourist goes viral

Footage of a cheeky monkey pulling down a man’s pants has gone viral on the Bali net.

Apparently set in the monkey capital of the world, Bali’s Ubud Monkey Forest, the video shows a monkey pouncing on a guy from behind. As the monkey springs with both arms wrapped around the guy’s waist, his shorts drop to the ground.

The video, posted to YouTube in December 2016, has a ‘staged’ feel though as we get gratuitous shots of the man’s butt cheeks and he takes what feels like forever to pull his pants back up—though could that be the shock of getting pantsed by a macaque.

If this video teaches you anything, let it be never to turn your back to monkeys (especially when you’re holding bananas) and always wear a belt.
