If you’re like me, you’re completely obsessed with Darwin, a.k.a. the Ikea Monkey. Even the staunchest of Toronto haters (and we know you’re out there) have to admit this spunky simian sidekick has placed Ontario’s capital city squarely on the adorableness map. Admittedly, things have become a touch stressful since Darwin’s parking lot antics several days ago. His owner, Yasmin Nakhuda, is locked in a legal battle to get him back from that primate sanctuary he was shipped off to.
To offset this tension, here’s some September 2012 video of Yasmin and Darwin brushing their teeth. It may be the greatest thing in the history of recorded image.
Also, allow me to introduce a new Twitter hashstag: #FreeIkeaMonkey!
By this I mean Darwin should be freed. I’m not offering free Ikea monkeys to people. Geez.
