Why the ‘dancing monkeys’ are ruining the road with their high-tech ‘vehicle’
A man with a camera strapped to his leg has taken his first video of the dancing monkeys, and it’s a spectacular sight.
The video was filmed by Paul Kipp, a teacher at Jordan Driving School, in the Hamtramek Valley.
Mr Kipp posted the video to YouTube with the caption: “I had a look at the monkeys dancing in the car.
They are very interesting and it was pretty cool.”
The video has attracted more than 2.4 million views, and the school is planning to install cameras in their vehicles to film the dancing children.
“We need to take them out of their cars and put them on the ground,” Mr Kiptramek said.
“And if we can get them off the ground, they can come out and enjoy themselves.”
He said the footage was shot over a couple of weeks and shows the dancing animals at the park.
“I think it’s pretty cool,” he said.
The teacher’s daughter said the monkey footage was “very touching”.
“It’s really heartwarming and it really gives people hope,” she said.
Jordan Driving Academy’s director of learning, Professor Mike Gurney, said the video was part of a campaign to educate the public about the dangers of distracted driving.
“It was very helpful to see how it was received,” he told ABC News.
“That was the main message that we were trying to convey, that distracted driving is a problem and it should be taken seriously.”
The school has since installed cameras to record the dancing monkey dancing, and Mr Kipperramek hopes the footage will be shared with parents to teach them to keep their eyes on the road.
“This is going to be a real learning experience for our students and parents, to see what the real risks are, and to understand the actual consequences of that kind of behaviour,” he added.
