minute it's a monkey and I assumed I was

01:03

in the top 1% of monkey fans but I just

01:06

found out that is not true I'm not even

01:09

close it's like when you see someone

01:10

post their Spotify wrapped on their

01:12

story and it says like they're the

01:15

0.1% fan of someone you're like how the

01:17

[Β __Β ] that even possible that's me with

01:19

monkeys my monkey rat because I just

01:21

became aware of a very small group of

01:23

people who not only love monkeys but

01:25

they are actually living their lives

01:27

like monkeys like they are quite

01:29

literally going bananas I had to get

01:31

that joke out of the way there are

01:32

people out there who are climbing trees

01:34

walking on all fours like gorillas

01:36

swinging on vines making monkey

01:39

sounds they're going absolutely monkey

01:42

mode so I first found out about this

01:45

lifestyle from this guy's Instagram page

01:47

his name is Leo Urban I think it's

01:49

pronounced leoan he's French and he has

01:51

the last name Urban the same way Keith

01:54

Urban does you know it's weird they have

01:55

that last name because both of these

01:56

guys seem pretty Rural and this guy is

01:58

known online as the real life Tarzan and

02:01

there's like a ton of Articles and

02:02

videos about him he also competes in

02:04

like professional tag which I just found

02:07

out was a real [Β __Β ] thing they got to

02:09

do that with other childhood games but

02:11

hide-and-seek in the Olympics DB Cooper

02:13

number one draft pick yes before we get

02:16

into this video and before I talk about

02:18

the this monkey movement at length I

02:20

just want to say I am in no way trying

02:21

to like shame these people for doing

02:24

this you can do whatever you want as

02:25

long as it's not hurting anybody okay

02:26

but I just think it's really interesting

02:28

and also really silly so I'm going to

02:30

goof on it a little bit sorry so I

02:32

watched a bunch of videos of Leo Urban

02:34

and I'll say this they're objectively

02:36

impressive there's videos of him

02:37

swinging on vines and branches climbing

02:40

and jumping around trees like it's

02:42

nothing it's pretty nuts and I was

02:43

immediately intrigued by this the first

02:45

question I had was like how far does

02:47

this go like what length does he live

02:49

his life as a monkey like is this just a

02:51

strictly fitness thing or an entire

02:53

lifestyle so let's go to his website and

02:55

find out so he calls this whole thing

02:57

Primal parkour and he defines it as

03:00

Primal parkour is inspired by Urban

03:02

parkour but it essentially takes shape

03:04

in nature the practitioner evolves in a

03:06

mixed and rugged environment in which he

03:08

will find his only inspiration o I guess

03:11

it's only for boys sorry controversial

03:14

take but I feel like all monkeys are

03:17

boys it's like how all cats are girls

03:19

and all dogs are boys they will find

03:21

their only inspiration the power of the

03:23

elements animals and the genetic

03:25

Heritage of our ancestors and on his

03:27

website he actually sells a booklet

03:29

called the introduction to Primal

03:31

parkour where you get the origins of

03:34

Primal parkour a warm-up program

03:36

introductory exercises in tree and rock

03:39

climbing and get this a glossery I don't

03:44

know how [Β __Β ] monkey like it is to

03:45

read a booklet you know like I feel like

03:47

if there was a booklet on how to be a

03:49

monkey the first page would be like

03:50

[Β __Β ] rip this out and eat it [Β __Β ]

03:52

chew on it I don't care wipe your ass

03:54

with it but if we scroll down a little

03:55

further he goes into more detail the

03:57

origins Primal has always existed

03:59

throughout history humans have had to

04:00

use their physical and instinctive

04:02

abilities to move hunt and defend

04:04

themselves in the 9s David Bell founded

04:06

parkour he was inspired by and adapted

04:08

it mainly to the urban environment in

04:10

2006 I discovered this Sport and living

04:12

at an altitude of 1,600 m i adapted

04:14

these techniques in this environment

04:16

quickly I achieved great Barefoot

04:18

performances which made me known in the

04:19

discipline values playing Outdoors all

04:21

year round while bare chested and bare

04:23

chested requires discipline and

04:25

perseverance respect for nature is

04:27

essential because it is the condition of

04:28

our Evolution through this this practice

04:30

you will strengthen values such as

04:31

courage perseverance humility and

04:33

respect all right I don't know about you

04:35

guys but I'm hooked this seems super

04:36

awesome and productive and not weird at

04:38

all so let's find out what the next main

04:40

aspect of this way of life

04:43

[Music]

04:46

is all right okay so before we can even

04:50

walk we wear shoes our best shoe is our

04:53

foot walking barefoot has unsuspected

04:55

benefits so take off your shoes and

04:57

enjoy yourself come on take them off

05:00

pick your Dan Schneider be like it is a

05:02

little bit too upfront about that aspect

05:04

of it you know like I think I think the

05:05

unsuspected benefits he's talking about

05:08

are only for him me seeing your feet

05:10

will benefit me greatly he does mention

05:12

the foot thing a lot and I'm sure that's

05:14

a pivotal part of this lifestyle but

05:16

like come on man for free really dude at

05:19

least put it behind a pay wall and make

05:21

that pay wall high enough that you can't

05:23

[Β __Β ] parkour over but you know I

05:25

guess it makes sense because monkeys are

05:27

usually bare feet you know they always

05:28

got their dogs out sometimes they wear

05:30

shoes and it's awesome and all jokes

05:32

aside from watching a lot of Leo's

05:34

content he seems like a really cool

05:36

genuine nice guy so I don't think like

05:38

the bare feet thing is coming from a

05:40

place of like perversion or anything

05:42

obviously but I think just like a

05:43

general rule of thumb or rule of toe if

05:46

a fitness influencer wants to see your

05:48

feet like right off the bat that's a

05:50

nickname of hum manzi this is a form of

09:22

exercise where you pretend to be a

09:34

that term open up a bunch of monkey

09:35

themed gyms call them gim panes play the

09:39

MVP movies on repeat on the TVs have

09:42

bananas all over the place and you can

09:44

even have a tanning bed there so people

09:46

could get an

09:49

orangutan instead of showers you'd pick

09:52

the bugs off each other's back I don't

09:53

know but like I said earlier Leo [Β __Β ]

09:55

like walks around on his knuckles and he

09:58

does like little knuckle fist bumps and

09:59

stuff and he also encourages people to

10:01

make monkey noises while they're

10:03

climbing

10:05

trees and you know how weird this is I

10:08

do love how committed he is to the

10:09

lifestyle he's basically the embodiment

10:11

of the meme okay so basically I'm monkey

10:14

When anybody asks him how he's able to

10:16

do all this crazy stuff he just shows

10:17

him that Meme and honestly in the grand

10:19

scheme of Fitness influencers trying to

10:21

sell you a certain lifestyle this is

10:23

very tame especially Fitness influencers

10:25

who use the term

10:27

Primal Leo is the a superior Fitness

10:30

influencer in that category for sure and

10:32

also Leo is constantly posting about the

10:34

environment and raising money for

10:36

Charities that are helping with climate

10:37

change and the loss of the animal's

10:39

natural habitat he also posted probably

10:41

the hardest picture I've ever seen in my

10:43

life on his Facebook page so [Β __Β ]

10:45

prepare

10:46

[Music]

10:49

yourselves that is so fire are you

10:52

[Β __Β ] kidding Michelangelo who

10:55

creation of Adam more like creation of

10:57

Adam painting that's a piece of [Β __Β ]

10:59

compared to this although after seeing

11:01

where monkeys put their fingers I

11:02

wouldn't be rushing to touch tips with

11:04

this guy but Leo isn't the only person

11:06

doing this in my research I found

11:08

another article about a guy in China who

11:10

claims that walking like a monkey has

11:12

stopped him from getting ill for three

11:14

decades or maybe he just can't get

11:16

health care every time he walks into a

11:17

hospital they're like dude you're you

11:19

got to go to the vet you're a gorilla

11:20

dude what are you doing here holy [Β __Β ]

11:22

is this a secret to a long life just

11:23

walking on all fours all those [Β __Β ]

11:25

pay pigs they're going to live forever

11:27

I'll read a little bit of the article I

11:28

started doing this walk exercise when I

11:30

was about 20 years old the Chinese man

11:32

told pear video I often watched the

11:34

monkeys at the zoo I thought it looked

11:36

so fun and I started imitating he added

11:39

good for him I'm also pretty glad that

11:40

he picked the monkeys to imitate like

11:43

that's a little weird but any other

11:44

animal would have been that extra step

11:46

of crazy you know yeah I just loved

11:48

watching the snakes so the last 20 years

11:50

I've kind of just been slithering around

11:53

and every couple months I rip my skin so

11:56

this movement exists all over but Leo

11:58

Urban is the main real life

12:00

Tarzan or so I thought turns out there's

12:04

another person who is also called the

12:06

real life Tarzan and Leo's dedication to

12:08

the ape lifestyle is pretty tame

12:10

compared to this next guy and his name

12:12

is Victor Manuel F sorry if I'm

12:14

pronouncing that wrong Victor is the

12:15

creator of this thing called the Tarzan

12:18

movement Tarzan movement back there

12:20

which has over 900,000 followers on

12:23

Instagram and Victor's connection with

12:24

monkeys runs much deeper than just

12:27

climbing on trees and running around

12:29

like Leo does essentially both of these

12:30

guys have the same mission statement

12:32

which is reject modernity Embrace monkey

12:36

but the way I see it Leo is parkour

12:38

first because he still does Urban

12:40

parkour I guess all the parkour he does

12:41

is urban cuz that's his last name but he

12:43

still climbs around in like buildings

12:45

and stuff but Victor on the other hand

12:46

is all in on the monkey lifestyle like

12:48

if there was a monkey off between Leo

12:50

and Victor Victor would be the

12:56

Victor according to an independent arti

12:59

today Fus believes that many humans have

13:01

lost touch with the natural world he

13:03

also believes that Apes embody a

13:05

spiritual connection to Nature that

13:07

we've forgotten about in our culture of

13:09

go- go capitalism and office cubicle so

13:11

he created a new instructive movement

13:13

that has already convinced hundreds of

13:15

people to take to the jungle and pretend

13:18

to be Apes known as the Tarzan movement

13:20

it is a fitness regime and novel

13:22

approach to life taught internationally

13:24

through workshops and climbing classes

13:26

with FAS encouraging his followers to

13:29

mimic the movements of apes and monkey

13:30

so he's fully embraced the monkey

13:32

gorilla glue to him is just glue and if

13:34

you go to Victor's Instagram it's just

13:36

him posting about the upcoming Tarzan

13:38

movement Retreats that he has coming up

13:40
