In news that will have you questioning who’s more evolved than whom, three silverback gorillas at the Werribee Open Range Zoo, Australia, have become huge fans of the Michael Bublé album Christmas. 

As zookeeper Ben Gulli explains in a video shared by the wildlife park, “The beautiful low tones that [Bublé] sings with kind of mimics their pleasure grumble.” Apparently, that’s why “when we play Michael Bublé’s CDs, the boys will instantly start pleasure grumbling, and sit nice and calm and relaxed.”

Word of his unusually-hairy following reached the singer, and he travelled all the way to Victoria, Australia to give a private primate concert. While the acoustics might have been better, the venue offered some spectacular views, and Bublé has surely performed for worse-smelling crowds. Bublé personalized the holiday standards, so that “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” contained the lyric, “Stop licking that stump!”

He's lovely, kind, caring, handsome and now an animal enthusiast, Michael just keeps getting better!
