An ABC video shows the animal trying on a woman's sunglasses after she dropped them into an enclosure at a safari park. The orangutan eventually throws the glasses back to the owner.

STEVE INSKEEP: Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Is Ray-Bans (ph) looking for a new brand ambassador? If so, an orangutan in Indonesia is ready. An ABC News video shows the animal trying on a woman's sunglasses after she dropped them into an enclosure at a safari park. The baby orangutan on the mother's lap keeps trying to get its hands on those sunglasses, but the grown animal bats the baby away before throwing the glasses back to the owner. Not now, baby - I'm a fashion icon. It's MORNING EDITION.
