Time to hit the club, Harry

Once upon a time, long before he fell in love with and proposed to Meghan Markle, Prince Harry spent several years stationed in Afghanistan while deployed with the British Army Air Corps. In 2013, during one such deployment in Afghanistan, Harry was interviewed by CNN. At one point, he cut the interview short when his regiment got the "call to fly," meaning the prince had to rip off his microphone and sprint across the tarmac behind him to the nearest helicopter. It was a heroic moment, to be sure, but when a clip of that interview resurfaced last week, it was in a much more playful context.

At the end of March, for reasons unknown, a Twitter user posted a GIF of the moment when Prince Harry suddenly hears the order behind him, turns around to see his fellow Air Corps troops running to their helicopters and dashes away—but the ingenious social media user also added Ariana Grande's "Into You" to the clip, and related the moment to hearing Grande's seminal hit coming from inside a club while taking a smoke break.

Since then, several others have followed suit. They've compared Harry's sprint across the tarmac to hearing everything from Beyoncé's "Formation" to The Killers's "Mr. Brightside" to Daddy Yankee's "Gasolina" come on from across the club and dropping everything to get to the dance floor as quickly as possible—much like you and your bride tribe at your bachelorette party wink, wink. A few also noted that they'd do the same if they heard the newly viral "Yodeling Boy" singing across Walmart—wouldn't you?!

Lucky attendees of Harry and Meghan's upcoming nuptials may get to see the former "Playboy Prince," no stranger to clubs himself, recreate the meme when his favorite song comes on at the reception. Honestly, who in their right mind would be able to resist commandeering the dance floor if the Spice Girls really do show up?
