Dan Daeng, 20, was giving the bamboo poles a coat of protective paint for the coming winter when the one-year-old jumbo walked over behind him.

The playful little elephant named Khunsuk reached through his enclosure and began using his trunk to tap Daeng. The mahout tried to ignore the elephant and carry on with his work, but Khunsuk slapped him on the cheek with his trunk. Khunsuk then stood up on his two hind legs while resting his front feet on the fence as he ruffled the mahout's hair with his trunk.

The adorable footage was captured at the Mae-Sa Elephant Camp in Chiang Mai, Thailand, on December 23.
