Sup Travellers?! Are you smarter than an ape? Most of us may say yes and it's probably true but the video above proves that knowledge and wisdom are two very different things. Humans are much smarter than apes but are we wiser? Hmmm.

In the video we see a group of participants trying to get a nut out of a tube. No one was able to successfully remove the nut but thanks to a little guidance from the ape now they know how.

The video is a back to school commercial designed to outline the perceived flaws of the Belgian education system, and to start a discussion on whether people are learning the "right" things.

The commercial is encouraging solution-focused education, or education that teaches kids to solve problems creatively.

Maybe if the water behind the participants was on the table next to to the tube they may have all figured it out but that would have just made it too easy. The water was right behind them all the time and no one even bothered to use it. Not very wise. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
