Surprise Olympic figure skating star Jason Brown has thrilled crowds in Sochi with his graceful style. 

His hairstyle has thrilled social media. 

The Highland Park, Illinois native's ponytail has spawned a Twitter account all its own. Already,  @2014PonyPower has more than 2,500 followers. 

The feed includes some snark and lots of hair jokes, and, no doubt, celebrates Brown. 

Some sample tweets include: 

  • Shopping list for Sochi. Hair Gel. Hair Elastics. Hairspray. Bobby Pins.
  •  Maybe if some of these skaters had some pony power their country would be placed higher in the team event so far #sorrynotsorry #ponypower
  • I looked fabulous at the skating spectacular today am I right ladies


Brown is no stranger to social media hits. The video of his performance at the Figure Skating Nationals, where he took silver, received more than 3 million hits. 

His hometown built a 10-foot ice statue of him as well

Brown skates again this week, so expect the twitter account to be buzzing with ponytail puns and cheers for Brown.
