A group of people on a trip to Africa film a pair of lion cubs as they fight to escape a bucket. It's the cutest exercise in futility ever!

The young cubs -- only 9 days old! -- at the Ukutula Lion Park struggle valiantly to free themselves, but their chubby bellies and lack of motor skills prevent escape.

Meanwhile, the humans filming the spectacle laugh appreciatively. "They just don't quite have the momentum," one points out.

Hopefully, the young cubs have learned a crucial lesson from all of this. If you're ever in a jam, don't expect help from people with a video camera.
