Some genius figured out that The Matrix and "Mambo No. 5" go together

1999's reality-bending blockbuster, The Matrix, is back with another plot twist: its iconic lobby shootout just so happens to sync up seamlessly with Lou Bega's campy classic "Mambo No. 5"—or at least the exclamation at 1:06 does.

What this means for our artificial reality—or the potentially sad reality of whoever figured this out—is unclear, but as long as there's a little bit of Trinity in his life, and a little bit of Morpheus by his side, Neo will always be able to fend off Agent Smith and his mechanical overlords.
