Hallworth, M. et al
Brady Chen, a zoologist at Ocean Park in Hong Kong, is taking credit for the long-awaited mating of pandas in captivity, saying that what finally got them sexually stimulated was his Spotify Playlist named “Songs To Smash To.”
The pandas, Ying Ying and Le Le, finally mated after 10 years of celibacy, which many experts are attributing to the lack of visitors due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. But Chen respectfully disagrees.
“I’m tellin’ ya bros, it works for me every time,” he exclaimed, going up for a high-five. “My last four bangs were from this playlist alone. Thanks to this playlist, I’ve been banging harder than Neil Peart on the drums.”
He explained that Neil Peart is certainly featured on the playlist, which also includes “Tell Me” by Usher, “Rockstar” by Nickelback, and seemingly out of nowhere, “Zorba The Greek” by Herb Albert.
“That Herb Albert song gets pretty fast, bro” explains Chad. “When you get going, it can speed out of control. Because of that song, I’ve broken three different futons.”
Other employees from the zoo are baffled. “I mean if it was due to the lack of human presence or Brady’s playlist, we’ll never know.” says Llana Zhao, a fellow zoologist. “But if it means a cute little panda baby next year, I’m all for it.”
