WATCH: This Viral Video Of A Gorilla Taking A Bath Will Make You Laugh



YouTube Screen grab

There's a new internet obsession in town starring a guy who truly is an alpha male. 

Zola, a dancing gorilla at the Dallas Zoo, is taking the web by storm with a clip of him going all "Flashdance" with his inspired pool moves.

The video (below) was originally uploaded sans song by the zoo, but once a Twitterer added the perfect tune, a star was born:

The behind-the-scenes zoo video was shot by Primate Supervisor Ashley Orr according to the YouTube description, which reads:

You may remember Zola when he was a youngster from the viral video of him breakdancing at The Calgary Zoo, but there’s a lot more to this behavior than you may think.

Enrichment helps enhance the environment and lives of animals, like Zola, by providing them with mental and physical stimulation to increase natural behaviors. Enrichment can take many forms, but for this spunky great ape, it means playing and spinning in his favorite blue pool while off habitat!
