As the Disney's philosopher orangutan King Louie once said "I wanna walk like you, talk like you. You see it's true, an ape like me can learn to be human too."
Trawling through YouTube's archives it would seem that the animal kingdom is rife with animals aping our daily tasks, from the office - attempting to use technology as advanced as an iPad or computer, to our living rooms and kitchens where you may catch them trying out a spot of washing-up. We've collected some of our favourites to share with you.
There's Pete, a capuchin monkey who learned washing up through watching a sanctuary volunteer, Russert the raccoon getting to grips with his rehabilitator's keyboard and a bulldog who's been mastering a skateboard videogame controller. Enjoy!
