Most of us would be horrified to learn how many days or weeks of our lives we’ve spent mindlessly scrolling through Instagram, feasting on memes and influencer #content until our eyes turn red.

Once you get over the initial shock of seeing a chimp so easily navigate an iPhone, the clip is pretty dang delightful, though — to be clear — it’s possible the footage isn’t real (it’s on the internet in 2019, after all). But as you can see, the lil’ guy seems totally entranced scrolling through Instagram, pausing to watch certain photos and videos, and even tapping to and fro to explore the grids of various accounts.
