LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WPVI) -- A viral video shows Jelani, the Western lowland gorilla, who appears to ask a man to swipe right as he scrolls through pictures on his cell phone.

Jelani is from the Louisville Zoo. According to its website, the Louisville Zoo has more than 1,500 animals on more than 134 acres of natural settings. There are currently 10 gorillas at the zoo.

The zoo says Jelani has a fascination with cell phones and is a "laid-back individual."
