Viral Video: Shakira Is Loca (But, Then Again, So Is Silicon Valley)

Enough with mishegas at Yahoo (YHOO) and the Facebook Movie and Oracle (ORCL) CEO Larry Ellison misbehaving like, well, Larry Ellison.

In it, Shakira rollerskates, rides on a motorcycle and even jumps in a fountain, all while making the video. As usual, she also shakes her hips, which apparently still don’t lie.
