The best video ever made.
12 April 2016 | by Lupe116See all my reviews

This video is absolutely fantastic, it should be shown in theaters everywhere! There's a lot of emotion and meaning in this video, and you can tell the acting is also great. The actor makes a great performance when making clear that he's at the zoo and the elephants have really long trunks.

Just amazing, loved every part of it. 11/10

I really don't have much else to say about this absolutely masterpiece of a video other than it's really amazing. To be quite honest I was done with this review until IMDb said I needed at least 10 lines so here I am typing more stuff. I'm pretty sure it's worth it, this review will surely be very helpful to a lot of people.
