CityNews – Warning: The following video may melt your heart.  Or, alternatively, simply confuse you.

The footage, as seen here,  attracted more than a million views in under a week after it was launched. 

Sangduen “Lek” Chailert,  chair of the Chiang Mai-based Save Elephant Foundation, discovered that humans are not the only animal to appreciate the soothing effects of a lullaby, over a decade ago- and has been using her canorous charms to subdue the sizable ellies ever since.

The scenes depict the soulful songstress singing a Thai lullaby to a traumatised elephant, lulling it to sleep.  The elephant whisperer convinces the rescued animal to lie down for a nap, and you can even hear it start to snore!
