Former NASA astronaut Mark Kelly did, in fact, arrange for a full gorilla suit to be sent aboard the ISS.

Mark Kelly left the space agency in 2011, and Scott Kelly left in 2016.

Kelly posted a video of himself bursting out of a bag dressed in the gorilla suit and chasing British astronaut Tim Peake around the International Space Station.
