PERFORMING CHIMPANZEE IS POTTY-TRAINED

CNN LIVE AT DAYBREAK
Music Video Calls on Potty People

...JEANNE MOOS, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): When it comes to potty training, this is music meant to inspire a movement. "I Gotta Go" is surely destined to make it to number one, not to mention number two....

MOOS: Vicky Esralew collaborated with pediatricians and commercial jingle composers. She held a casting call for kids.... Not to mention a potty trained chimp.

UNIDENTIFIED CHILD: That monkey's sure funny.

MOOS: Angel the chimp learned to potty my mimicking his keepers. Guess they didn't close the door. Angel even flushes the toilet.... Though Angel's owner says if left alone, he would flush a hundred times.
