Daily Diary - Smart elephant

We have heard of cats riding bicycles and dogs doing the hula, but never come across an elephant using a smartphone. Until now.

A YouTube clip of an elephant playing with the new Samsung Galaxy Note is not, as you might think, a ploy by the company to use cheap labour in an ad campaign but, in fact, genuine.

The minute-long video, which involves no trickery, has already racked up more than two million views in just over a week.

Whatever next, a robin playing Angry Birds on the iPad 3? Now there’s a campaign we’d like to see.
