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 movie was evident to Derek Mozer. 



You've seen Zola dancing before. Neatorama featured his break dancing five years ago when he lived at the Calgary Zoo. (via Metafilter)

What's the old quotation...?

“Dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”

There are plenty of variations. The Patty Loveless version :

You gotta sing like you don't need the money
Love like you'll never get hurt
You gotta dance like nobody's watching
It's gotta come from the heart if you want it to work.

That's not funny, I know a kid who danced that way.
