This is a real video from a French documentary about Africa. You may or may not understand a word, but the video's a cracker. There are trees that grow in Africa which, once a year, produce very juicy fruits that contain a large percentage of alcohol.
Because there is a shortage of water, as soon as the fruits are ripe, animals come there to help protect themselves from the heat.
A beautiful, leafy tree that is both drought resistant and yields exceptional fruit per tree, S. birrea is highly prized in Africa. It is widely distributed from 20ºN to 30ºS, and is found in 29 countries, but few have succeeded in commercially harvesting the fruit and/or nuts. A prolific fruit bearer, one single tree can bear up to 500 kg of fruit per year; in fact an exceptional tree in Pretoria is known regularly to produce a tonne of fruit!

My dad served his tour of duty in Panama. The monkeys there would eat the over ripened fruits and get drunk. The fermentation happened naturally, and he said that drunk monkeys would usually become more brave and belligerent.

That video was hilarious! Drunken elephants, drunken giraffes, drunken monkeys, and my personal favorite the drunken ostrich!
First time I've ever seen a drunk ostrich. Well worth the wait!
