WWDC 2020 One of the low-key highlights following any Apple keynote is seeing how Jonathan Mann, the musical YouTuber who once made Steve Jobs dance, will turn it into a song. This year, Mann’s winning creation is called “I Just Go Into Jiggle Mode,” using a line uttered by Apple software chief Craig Federighi during Monday’s virtual WWDC keynote.

Along with audio clips from the event, Mann also sings tweets written by various online commentators. The results are weird, hilarious — and more than a little catchy. Check out the WWDC 2020 song below.

WWDC song is just Mann’s latest Apple hit

Mann has been an Apple fan for years, dating back to the Apple II days. Some of his notable Apple songs include “Duet With Siri,” “Autocomplete Song” and “I Am Pressing the Spacebar and Nothing Is Happening.” However, easily the No. 1 entry on the list is the song he wrote about Apple’s Antennagate PR disaster. It was actually played during an Apple keynote. Today, Mann composes a song per day on his YouTube channel — about Apple and assorted other topics. You can check out his As It Happens: Song A Day podcast on Apple Podcasts.

And, if you’re wondering, the lyrics to his latest WWDC-themed creation are below. Just in case you want to sing along:

“Full access, thanks Emily
I just go into jiggle mode
(Shot of guy dancing)
Down deep below the surface.

Universal not enough for you, try universal two
I have a huge, rich complication right in my center, too
OMG Rosetta 2, electric boogaloo
Why did he run away
(Oh hey)

Support for iOS apps, WTF, tell me more about that
If you see an original Mac you know shits about to go down
We fixed Siri this year, that’s all I want to hear
Big props to this presenter for also doing the dancing part.”
