Yet another gorilla is becoming an internet sensation after the primate was photographed giving what appears to be a lecture to a bunch of bystanders.

Kelly, a 30-year-old male western lowland gorilla, was actually catching a treat keepers tossed when the picture was taken, a spokesperson with the Los Angeles Zoo Association told InsideEdition.com. 

"Kelly is a funny boy – big and impressive," zookeeper Nancy Bunn said. "He acts stand-offish at first, then warms up to a crowd. If there is food involved, he becomes a real ham for the keeper."

The photo was published as a promotional image for a summer event at the Los Angeles Zoo, but the ape quickly garnered the nickname, "TED Talk Gorilla."

Another Twitter user even referenced another gorilla that went viral last week for splashing around in a kiddie pool. 

Zola, the 14-year-old western lowland gorilla at the Dallas Zoo, was seen in a video last week to show he is enriched and comfortable, the zoo said.
