I’m sure by now you’ve all heard the story of Christian the lion. A lion who was reintroduced to the wild by George Adamson, who then decided to go look for him to see whether Christian would remember him. He did, and it was extremely touching and the video went on to become a viral sensation amassing over five million views.

Now, a similar video has surfaced, this time featuring a man reuniting with his childhood gorilla friend. While the video is not necessarily new, it’s bound to go viral if it hasn’t already. Similar to the story of Christian the lion, it is about a man visiting his gorilla friend who was released into the wild five-years ago. The original clip comes from the Animal Channel series “Gorilla School.”
