Which are the most striking elements of Monkey Pong?

Summary:
Watch this if you haven’t already: What comes to your mind is an interesting kind of Rorschach test.  A few options (not necessarily endorsed by me) are: 1. Where did they get that background from? 2. Can I have some of what that monkey is drinking? 3. Wealth concentrations are going to make IRB regulations less relevant over time. 4. How many people want to play Pong against a wired monkey?  Will we employ or enslave monkeys to enable this?  What is in fact the relevant difference? 5. What else can that monkey (cognitively) do better than I can? 6. Which regulatory agency will have jurisdiction over the (presumably disabled) humans who want this as a medical treatment?  What about the non-disabled humans?  The Navy pilots? 7. Where does this all end? 8. Will this raise or lower the price
