Playing Clair de Lune for a blind 80-year-old elephant

video description: A piano sits in a forest clearing. A man leads an elephant to it, pats its trunk, and plays Clair de Lune by Debussy. The elephant waggles its ears and listens patiently.

There's a little-known elephant sanctuary near Nashville where I used to live (little known because they don't allow visitors; it's purely for the elephants). I wonder if they ever do this.
