Red Hot Chili Pepper’s star Flea has had a busy year, he recently played the national anthem at basketball stars Kobe Bryant’s final NBA game, and he has been playing gig’s with the band in support of their latest album The Getaway.

But he managed to take some time away recently to meet and hang out with probably the world’s most famous gorilla, Koko.

In a series of videos posted online, Flea presents Koko with a bass guitar that she instantly begins to pluck and strum.

“This is the greatest thing that could ever happen,” he says. “This is the day I’ll never forget in my life.”
