A Raccoon Tried To Braid My Hair Like In Pocahontas


– They can claw through
human skin instantly. (shrieks) Pocahontas, this one’s for you girl. (dramatic music) Hey Selorm? – Yeah? – You know who has really tiny hands? – My girl scout leader. – No, raccoons. There’s a scene in Pocahontas, it’s like a beautiful setting, and her hair’s gettin all
breezy ’cause it’s like colors of the wind (animal squeaking) happening. So she’s like, oh my god I have so much like beautiful long hair. Who am I gonna turn to to braid my hair? Do I have any friends
in the woodlands area? No. – She has one friend actually.
– Who? – [Selorm] That girl with the ponytail. – Okay well, John Smith sucks. I need a creature friend that has a thumb. It’s Meeko, a raccoon, her BFF. No rubber band needed. No hairspray, this was
like bllddadeep done. Then she’s just like on her way. It’s like straight off
of Instagram beautiful and I need to know, if a
raccoon can do that for me. – I don’t like raccoons, I
have to be real with you. – Why? – You want a little raccoon that’s been digging through the trash,
sharp teeth, rabies, digging through your hair? – Yeah. First of all, raccoons
are (horn squeaking) cute, and I wanna hang out with one. And second of all, I
wanna see if this is true. – The only way we’re
gonna know for sure is if you try it out so, let’s do it. – Little hands, they’re so small. (bones clacking) (whimsical music) Oh my god who are you? – Hi I’m Crystal. I train all kinds of different animals for the movie industry. – [Both] Wow! – I’ve been told that you
can’t just walk up to a raccoon and go like hey braid my hair.
(animal squeaking) – They are way more intelligent than most people give them credit for. They’re kind of like a cross
between a cat and a monkey. They’re very mischievous. They can be very aggressive
when they want to be. – When do they wanna be aggressive? – [Crystal] When they want their stuff and you don’t give it to them. – What are the dangers involved with a raccoon braiding your hair? – [Crystal] If they wanted to, they could do some serious damage. You have an animal with
really sharp teeth, and really sharp claws. – Like how sharp? – Between a house cat and a lion. (roaring)
(gasping) – Do they have rabies? – They can carry rabies, yes. – Oh.
(animal squeaking) – [Crystal] One of the raccoons
is not a big fan of blondes. – Guys our director is
blonde, what does it mean? – [Selorm] Can a raccoon braid
her hair like in Pocahontas? – Braids are kinda complicated but maybe, I’m just that good of an animal trainer, and I’ll teach my raccoon
how to braid your hair. – Oh that’s what I like to
hear, someone confident! We’re gonna go training. I know that like, death, important. Raccoon accepting me and
loving me, more important. We’re here today, training
with Hollywood Animals. We’re about to meet two raccoons. That are super smart I hope. – [Crystal] Daisy! (chewing) The raccoon will have to be on a leash. If anything were to happen,
we can pull them off. – At first I’m gonna kinda face away, not really make eye
contact, because that can be a little bit intimidating
and stressful for them. I love raccoons and I hope they love me or I’ll be devastated. Highlight of my life, lil’ tiny hands. Here we go. (dramatic music) (chewing) (dramatic music) – We hit the clicker and feed them, so they understand that
every time we click, they get paid with food. – I’m really shocked that in
the first time meeting them, they were immediately
doing pretty close to what it looks like in Pocahontas. – [Crystal] Take it over. Can you take it over? – Can they actually braid? I don’t know. They are talented, smart,
beautiful creatures. I can’t hug them, which is fine. Kind of like they’re a celeb. But Selorm’s gonna lose
her mind when she sees these raccoons because they’re so cute. No, actually she hates them, right? This is the best day of my life. (happy music) Ooh, they’re so cute! The paws feel like little tiny baby hands. They’re beautiful, very smart, very smart. Oh you wanna play? (giggles) I love you so much. (giggles) I get it Pocahontas, this
is the (animal squeaking). (happy music) Today is the day, my friends. We’ve got drama, we’ve got
danger, we’ve got Disney. You know what else we have? – Doritos. – Tiny little hands. I spent the entire day
training with two raccoons. Sometimes they feel like doing (animal squeaking) sometimes they don’t. Which honestly, is like all of us, right? We just lay it out for you, all the stuff that you have
to do if you wanna like, chill with a raccoon,
which you shouldn’t do. First off, never poach
a raccoon in the wild. They could have rabies. – They probably have rabies. – That’s not true. They don’t probably have
it, they might have it. – She’s getting rabies today. – Calm down. They have really sharp
(animal squeaking) teeth. Don’t make eye contact, and I am not (animal squeaking) around. Don’t make eye contact. They have sharp (animal squeaking) claws. They might be all like
pitter pattering around, like eating lil snackies, but those things are really
sharp and they can literally claw through human skin instantly. If you have any food near
you, just like, don’t. – Don’t do it. – Just like don’t. They’re like. (slapping and screaming) I’m willing to take this
chance for all the Disney fans, the nay sayers, the raccoon haters. – Damn. – How are you feeling based on my one day of raccoon training. – Do you know they had us
all sign waivers today? Even our sound person signed a waiver. There’s no going back now,
you gotta do the thing. I wish you the best. – Pocahontas, this one’s for you girl. Let’s go. I’m here in my fake
(animal squeaking) forest. Selorm how are you feeling? – I’m fine, I’m fine. – You scared? – No. – You nervous? – No. – That looks like a lie. – Mm mm.
(laughs) – I need to put my hair
into three beautiful strands for the raccoon to grab just like you would if you were doing a braid. – Very trendy. – Thank you so much. I’m using tiny little
rubber bands because their teeny little hands need a teeny
little rubber band to match. – You’re so creepy with
this tiny hands thing. – It’s not creepy, it’s just love. Bring in the raccoons. (tense dramatic music) (crunching) – [Crystal] Pick it up. – Alright dudes, so far so good. – Yeah. – I’m very hopeful, very inspired. – This is not church, can
we just do this thing. – This is it baby. – I really hope this works. – [Crystal] Daisy, get up there! (clicking) Good, pick it up. Put it here. Good. – Ooh, it’s a tight grab. Daisy’s getting it, she’s almost there. (record scratching) (playful music) – Daisy attempted a
(animal squeaking) braid. But, she was like, I’m gonna
start a braid, I’m done. I’m just gonna do it, that’s it. I need a moment of mourning. I thought this would
happen, and it didn’t. – Okay. (shimmering) – Not to be biased, but I think this is one of
my favorite experiments. But, I have some sad news to report. This…. (sad music) was bogus. Raccoons can’t braid hair. That’s like (animal squeaking)
that that’s how life is, but a braid involves crossing, weaving, all into one beautiful strand. And raccoons. – Couldn’t do it. – Pocahontas, this one’s for you girl. We did it for you. Even though it’s fake. (humming)
