African Animals Getting Drunk From Ripe Marula Fruit

A scene from “Animals are Beautiful People” that shows African animals getting drunk after eating fermenting marula fruit, the fruit used to make the alcoholic drink, Amarula. The film was made in 1974 and starred an all-animal cast of wild African animals. Shot in and around South Africa, the movie went straight to cinema and has thrilled audiences ever since.

One of the most beloved scenes from the nature documentary is the one shown in this clip. Baboons, elephants and even ostriches eat the ripe, fermenting marula fruit and start stumbling around in a drunken parody of humans who have been drinking.

“Animals are Beautiful People” draw many similarities between animals and humans, personifying the wild creatures in an attempt to inspire humans to view their animal brethren with more humanity.
