The director of the zoo was semi-cool with me pretending to be one of the animal attractions, even going so far as to lock me in an empty cage. But the moment I made my Brianimal seem at all upset about being behind bars, he put the kibosh on my performance and made it clear that the animals wanted to be there. Public perception and all. Never mind that I was playing a human wrongfully imprisoned in a zoo. I got to hang out with a giant tortoise and feed it watermelon, so it’s all good.
