"That Friday feeling when your dancing gorilla's moves go viral, wrote a Dallas Zoo official on Facebook". The video had 40,607 views at time of writing, and even inspired a superb edit with music. It appears that behind-the-scenes is quite entertaining to the 14-year-old Western lowland gorilla.

The Dallas Zoo posted a 30-second clip of Zola splashing and spinning around wildly on Tuesday.

Well, enter Zola the gorilla from the Dallas Zoo. It's not clear if Zola has ever watched "Flashdance", but his moves definitely emulate Jennifer Beal's perfectly.

Zola, is seen splashing around in the pool like a pro.

The zoo's primate supervisor, Ashley Orr, captured this video of Zola cutting a rug, if you will.

How many memes do you see being created? I'd rather no one check in on that.

Get this gorilla a movie.

The Dallas Zoo uploaded footage of him breakdancing in a kiddie pool and it's awesome.

It's not the first time Zola, amateur dancer, has taken Internet fame for a spin. It has nearly four million views, the report said.
