    New Delhi (Sputnik): Stories and videos of elephants bathing each other with trunky showers or sliding down jungle slopes just to splash into water often make it to the viral headlines. This time, however, there is a twist to the story.

    Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Susanta Nanda on Friday posted a video on Twitter showing two young elephants playing alongside water somewhere in India. Of the pair that looked like siblings, the baby elephant was seen using all its might to push its elder brother into the water for a bath.

    Nanda hilariously captioned the video – “You can take an elephant to water, but you can’t make him swim”.

    ​In the comments, a Twitter user named Saumya Tripathi posted another video, that showed the younger elephant finally succeeding in pushing his teenaged brother head over heels into the water.

    ​Netizens are calling the “sweet” video the “best thing on the internet today”.
