Splashdancing Gorilla

Where does a 380-pound gorilla dance? Wherever he wants to. Zola the gorilla lives at the Dallas Zoo. He's 14 years old, but he has a sense of fun that other gorilla adults don't often show. He especially likes his pool. Zookeepers say the pool is not just for fun, it's for enrichment. You say tomato, I say tomato.

The video was so delightful that folks immediately added a soundtrack. The resemblance to a certain 1983 movie was evident to Derek Mozer.

Of course, you've seen Zola dancing before. We featured his break dancing five years ago when he lived at the Calgary Zoo. -via Metafilter
