Even if you don’t have an elephant’s memory, you might have this honeyed lullaby stuck in your head for quite a long time.

The adorable scene—reportedly shot at the Elephant Nature Park in the Ban Ta Klang village—is a pleasant change of pace for Elephant News, which generally specializes in documenting acts of cruelty toward elephants, in the hopes of saving them from extinction.

The company’s short documentary Gentle Giants is currently in post-production, according to its site.
