Whalephant Juno the Beluga whale intrigued by bagpiper

Whenever I see "Funny" coupled to "animals" at YouTube, I approach them with extreme caution, as what counts as 'funny' is subjective.

Juno, a beluga whale residing at the Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, Connecticut, has quite a number of videos on YouTube. He's something of a character, mostly as he's known for trolling little kids, but there are also a handful of videos that show musical performers playing songs for him.

I've watched most of them, but this was the first I saw. I don't know how much he actually hears--he seems more interested in the instrument in this video--but he stays close to the glass the entire time.

It ain't the music that has his attention.

I wanted McBeluga inspired to whale call, "but they'll never take our FREEDOM!!!!!!!!" and then do a Free Willy over the bagpiper's head.
