This is just a great rescue. And the transport of the baby chimp was captured on camera!
Here’s how Storyful describes it:

Owen Wilson is apparently so popular for the way he pronounces “wow,” that large crowds of people are gathering together to mimic him.
Scott explains that:
Wilson has said the word in a range of contexts during his movie career and some have even created series of compilation videos of him saying “wow” across his filmography. It’s also become the subject of many memes.
Here are some more clips for your viewing, and listening pleasure.
