Those are some serious anti-vaccine movements.

I like how the only effective method, which the keeper figures out at the end of the video, is to roll them away from him.

Now that's the kind of job I want! If you are hug attacked by adorable panda cubs for 8 hours every day, you couldn't possibly stay cynical and brooding about world events.

My dog pulls the same moves every time I take out the tick tweezers.

i cannot stress enough how fucking goobery pandas are. every goobery panda video is nothing compared to being in the actual goobery presence of pandas, they are so fucking ridiculous. they spend like 50% of their day eating and 50% of their day napping and 100% of their day falling down while doing one or the other.

ugh they're so pudgy and dumb i want 10,000

I can relate, sort of...we started one of the cats on an oral med (with syringe) today...

But...it was nowhere NEAR that much fun!

keeper: this is not a game
pandas: play with meeeeeeeee

I liked the panda's "ohhhhhhhh, ewwwwwww" stuck-out tongue response when the keeper finally managed to get the medicine in its mouth

and the keeper's nimble leap away from the hugging pandas right at the end.

That black paw over the masked face move? Too cute, far too cute. This video needs a Too Cute warning. I was happy being morose, seeing things in black and white. Now that black and white has been made 100% cute, I'll have to hang around rainbows.

Until this moment, I had never understood what was the big deal about pandas.

It seems like they would quite like to eat the breeder, though, so maybe he should just smear the medicine all over himself and wait for success.

These have got to be the only bears it is safe to wrestle with, even as cubs.

It's only when the sibling betrays the victim by wrestling with them instead of the keeper that the medicine finally goes in.

I completely missed my train stop because I was too busy laughing at the CUTENESS OVERLOAD OMG and I aint even mad

I love how the breeder swings the panda clinging onto his back around at the start. That is some high-level panda handling shit

And how he's just like NOPE when the second panda comes in at the end

I guess what I'm saying is that I really like this video. Thanks Metafilter

They should hide their medicine in their eats, which, I am told, are generally shoots and leaves.

He should really play with them for a while after dosing them. The pandas are resisting because they know the fun's over as soon as they take the medicine /pandawhisperer

These are literally the moves I have to use to get my toddler to take medicine, expect that the pandas don't vomit the medicine all over the keeper at the end.

I also love the completely ineffective tap the zoo guy gives one of the pandas on the nose.

For those of you comparing this to your dog or toddler, just imagine if you had two of them tag-teaming you. Still not as cute as this.

He will hug them and pet them and call them George.

It's weird how pandas look and move exactly like HUMANS IN PANDA SUITS.

omg, it's like trying to give oral meds to giant, 'polly cats. It's one of those experiences that results in that very particular mix of frustration and amusement that only pets can provide.

I want to play with a panda! So. Much. Right. Now!

if you go to the wolong panda sanctuary in chengdu you can pay an undisclosed amount of money, probably like $250, to have a "private panda encounter" which i assume sounds better in chinese because in english it sounds like panda call girls, and anyway you put on scrubs and hug a juvenile (not a small baby, about halfway between these video pandas and a tiny baby one) panda and play with it under panda scientist supervision for half an hour. i did not get to do this because no one told me about it until the very last day we were there and you have to schedule it like a week in advance and my cousin had to drag me out of the park while i waved fistfuls of rmb and shrieked with impotent sobby rage.

Yes - like every great tag team match, there was a heel turn.

"Hello, is that China? Great, now here's the thing: I am totally opposed to the illegal wildlife trade and I consider it cruel, corrupt, vile...just generally evil. However some information has recently come to light and after serious and careful consideration I am going to require two...no, three...three wrestling juvenile pandas to be shipped to me in Australia on a special boat that is actually just their zoo enclosure but seaworthy. No don't worry about Customs & Border Protection, there will be a transfer at sea and we will stash them on Johnny Depp's private jet for the last few miles of their journey. Excellent, thank you."
