If you thought the Mannequin Challenge died along with the Hillary Clinton campaign, you were wrong. The meme, which began—as all most great things do—with bored teenagers and quickly spread around the world, may have reached its peak Thursday morning when Paul McCartney posted a video of himself partaking in it.
A video of any rock legend standing still as a camera sweeps around him would be fun enough, but this one is especially notable because of its backing song: Rae Sremmurd’s hit “Black Beatles,” which has become the meme’s unofficial soundtrack and includes the lyrics, “Black Beatle, bitch, me and Paul McCartney related.”
“Love those Black Beatles #MannequinChallenge,” McCartney wrote. Watch it below.
