The motorboat impression by this orca is spot-on.

The orca in this video from Dreadfin Records gives a dead-on impression of the whine, sputter and bubbling of an outboard motor on some visitors’ boat.

The orca’s name is Luna, and we may never know for sure if he’s complaining about the noise, attempting to communicate, or just making a crude joke, but either way it’s a clear sign of the cetacean’s incredible intelligence.

Luna was a famously beloved whale from Vancouver Island and is the subject of the 2011 documentary, The Whale.

Ultimately killed by a motorboat, Luna left her admirers not only with videos like these to make them smile, but with a sobering reminder of the importance of caring for wildlife.

What do you think Luna was trying to say?
