Mary McCartney/MPL CommunicationsProving you can teach an old dog new tricks, Paul McCartney has joined in on the latest meme sweeping the internet — the Mannequin Challenge. And why not? The song played in the challenges is called “Black Beatles” and is performed by the Atlanta-based hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd.

The “Cute” Beatle used the track for his own Mannequin Challenge viral video, in which he is seen standing in a static pose next to a piano.

“Love those Black Beatles #MannequinChallenge,” he tweeted under the video’s caption.

The hip-hop duo’s song is one of the most used in Mannequin Challenge videos to date, with Rae Sremmurd member Swae Lee recently giving Entertainment Weekly his explanation for the phenomenon.

“It’s the best song out! It has a good mood to it, and the world is just appreciating that song,” he said. “When it comes on, it makes you feel a certain vibe.”
