Have you ever seen a gorilla get down?

This is not the first-time Zola has performed for a viral audience, CNN reported.

Zola is one of several gorillas at the Texas zoo.

Zola has not been trained to dance and his moves are all natural behaviour to him.

Zola, a 14-year-old male Western Iowland gorilla, was caught on camera "breakdancing" in a pool.

According to the zoo though, there's a lot more to what we're witnessing than just a gorilla splashing around. Instead, people began adding their own soundtracks to take things up a notch, including, of course, the classic tune "Flashdance". Zookeepers recently captured a behind-the-scenes video of Zola having an absolute blast in a small pool. The video had 40,607 views at time of writing, and even inspired a superb edit with music.

And, of course a clever interwebber has already added music to the video - with the ideal match-up being "Maniac" from the movie.

"This is the type of play you would see from children", he explains.
