"This was part of a two-day experiment set up by Nagasaki Bio Park and arcade operator Wide Leisure to answer the question of whether or not monkeys can understand, and win at, crane games. Obviously, this required a few monkey-specific modifications to the machine, such as adequately padding the frame so that the animals wouldn't hurt themselves while climbing around the frame. Ordinary crane games are activated by 100-yen coins, but monkeys generally don't carry change around with them, so their machine would simply start when someone manipulates the controls, with no monetary transactions required. Also, while a Sanrio plushie or One Piece figure might look like a great prize to a human crane game player, this machine was stocked with something more appealing to monkeys: a whole bunch of raisins."

How fun! Some used their hands to move the controller, others used their mouth. I didn't expect that.

I suspect they did not film the ones who used their butt?

They did, but those videos are special order and get you put on a list.
