Dancing gorilla mashed up to iconic 'Flashdance' song will brighten your day

RAW: Zola the gorilla dances at Dallas Zoo

If you were looking for a great example of a viral video, footage of a gorilla dancing in a padding pool would fit the bill.

Well, enter Zola the gorilla from the Dallas Zoo.

The zoo uploaded video to their YouTube channel showing the gorilla bust a few moves in the water and the internet immediately fell in love.

While the original video is fun to watch, Twitter user Bob Hagh just may have made Zola a true internet star.

Hagh tweeted out a new edit of the video with the gorilla dancing along to the song "Maniac" on the Flashdance soundtrack.

And thanks to the music, the footage just went to a whole new level.

According to Mashable, there's more to this behavior. These types of enrichment activities provide the animals with mental and physical stimulation to increase natural behaviors.

Let's hope this means we get to see more videos of Zola dancing like he's never danced before.
