Killer Whale Swims Up to Boat, Imitates Motor's Sound

It's technically not a good thing to anthropomorphize animals, but it's really hard not to when you see this killer whale doing its darndest to sound like a boat's motor.

But, turns out, this is a video from a couple years ago of Luna, a wild orca male, which lost his family and tried to buddy up with boaters.
