    Zoos are full of animals that like the cold, so when snow descends on a zoo that houses animals that can tolerate the cold weather, we get a gift in the form of animals flipping out over snow.

    WGN's Dan Ponce was inspired by the frostbitten abyss that is his hometown to belt out the recent Oscar-winning standard Let It Go.

(RNN) – What better way to start off our Olympic edition of "Your Week in Viral Videos" than with the London mayor?

Boris Johnson has been about the biggest cheerleader any host nation or city could possibly hope for, so when he ziplined through Victoria Park holding a couple of Union Jacks, you just knew it was going to be priceless moment.

We just didn't know it was going to be this priceless – or this humiliating.

Way to keep it classy, BoJo.

BOOTLEG OLYMPICS COVERAGE

NBC's exclusive Olympic coverage has driven many people to think of creative (translation: borderline illegal) ways to watch live competition.

The Wall Street Journal took the most creative approach to bypassing the tight grip that the Peacock Network put on the games: puppets.

That's right. Missy Franklin won her first Olympic gold with as much glue and string as determination and heart.

Go ahead, WSJ, show those folks at NBC corporate what the Olympics were originally built on: innovation, spirit and a really, really small budget.

BEYOND THE BLOOM OF YOUTH … WAY BEYOND

The fountain of youth lies in a padded mat on the other side of a 7'-high horizontal bar – who knew?

This 90-year-old pole vaulter is likely the only person in the world his age who is more concerned about breaking records than he is about breaking his hip.

And he probably made most of the people who watched this video jealous because they will never be in that kind of shape – no matter what their age.

TEAM USA TRIBUTE TO MUHAMMAD ALI

Seriously, how did this not happen earlier?

Team USA made an incredibly inspiring and entertaining tribute to the GOAT (Greatest of All Time, for those of you on the late bus). It doesn't quite make up for the recently acquired habit of using Ali as a glorified mascot during Opening Ceremonies, but it's still very touching.

Watch. Love. Replay.

EPIC OLYMPIC WATER GUN BATTLE

This one is a head scratcher, but it gets votes for being unique.

Thousands of people who don't know each other meet in the middle of a field and start firing indiscriminately at whoever is closest.

If the ammunition of choice wasn't water, then the United Nations would have had a huge situation on its hands.
