Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” is a contemporary homage to Beatlemania, and it hasn’t escaped Sir Paul McCartney’s radar—neither has the #MannequinChallenge the song inspired. The Wings founder tweeted a video of himself standing frozen over a piano while a snippet of the track plays. Goofy Paul really is the best Paul.
