— -- This could be the cutest case of “monkey see, monkey do” ever.

A trip to the Columbus Zoo on August 27 became Internet gold for this toddler named Isaiah playing hide-and-seek with an adorable 2-year-old gorilla.

"He was just looking at the gorillas and we said to him, 'Isaiah what do the gorillas do?' and he started pounding his chest," the boy’s mom, Sherry Chute, told The Columbus Dispatch of how her son initially got the gorilla’s attention.

It looks like the game is driving the young pair bananas as they chase each other back and forth on opposite sides of the glass for nearly five minutes. Although, who can blame them? Hide-and-seek is a very a-peel-ing game.

“It was a really fun interaction," Chute said.

The adorable YouTube video has been viewed nearly 3,000 times.
