This Maniac Gorilla Dancing Is Your Party Spirit Animal This Weekend

By 06.24.17

We may not have Harambe in our lives and only in our hearts, but his everlasting spirit lives on with Zola the Gorilla. The funky monkey dances like nobody is watching, but in reality, EVERYBODY is watching. The dancing gorilla has gone super viral and video of the gyrating primate has been viewed millions of times in the last 24 hours. Zola is your new favorite gorilla thanks to her epic video of her dancing in a kiddie pool full of water at the Dallas Zoo where she lives.

Thanks to Star-Telegram video producer Bob Hagh we have a perfect remix. He mashed up Zola’s dance moves with Michael Sembello’s song “Maniac” that was made popular by a similar wet dance party of one in the 1983 movie “Flashdance.”

Zola has been dancing since she was young and lived at the Calgary Zoo. Here is a crazy break dance routine.

When you’re a party animal this weekend, make sure that Zola the Gorilla is your spirit animal that inspires you to not give a fuck.
