Most people aren't inspired by monkeys, day to day. Japan's 'Monkey Man' Kenichi Ito isn't like most people - what with him holding the world record for fastest run on all fours and all.

You see, 29-year-old Kenichi was inspired by the Patas monkeys of central Africa to take up his passion for scrambling across the dirt - something he's embraced whole-heartedly.

In fact, back in November 2008, Ito set the world record for running 100 metres on all fours. His time was 18.58 seconds, according to Guinness World Records - a record that still stands.

So check out his astonishing footwork in the video above, and for videos of actual monkeys doing actual monkey business, take a look at our video gallery below.
