Dancing Gorilla – level 3

10/07/2011 16:07

Breakdancing is a modern art. It requires fitness, rhythm and a lot of upper body strength. This guy certainly has the latter. But can a gorilla really breakdance? Well, yes, if this video is anything to go by.

He certainly has some quick feet like the former footballer he shares his name with. He’s called Zola. The video was filmed at Calgary Zoo in Canada. Zola’s 9 years old and according to zoo keepers it looked like he was breakdancing because he loves to play in shallow water.

(The music was added later and it became an internet sensation.)
