Did This Gorilla Just Roast Marshmallows?

This recently released clip from Monkey Planet shows a gorilla lighting a campfire and enjoying a snack. Many have speculated that this primate is either mimicking behavior or was taught, over a long period of time, to do this for the camera.
From BBC One:

Kanzi the bonobo lives in America and has learnt how to build a fire, light it using matches and toast marshmallows on it. It shows just how like us some primates really are.

What do you think?

    Please note that bonobos are not gorillas! They are actually more like chimpanzees and more closely related to humans.

    Yeah but can he make “Smores”?
