You've GOTTA see this!
The Painting Elephant.

I know a lot of you have seen videos of elephants smearing paint on a canvas with their trunk, but you haven't seen one like this.

This is a real video, verified by snopes.com. It is amazing, breathtaking, and brought tears to my eyes.

ETA: If the video doesn't load, click here.
