Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are on TikTok—and they’re all-in on the latest dance challenge.

The “Flip the Switch” challenge is inspired by the song of the same name by Lopez’s ex, Drake. The joke is that mid-song, the two app users switch places. It became an overnight national sensation on Sunday following Elizabeth Warren’s Saturday Night Live duet with her cast doppelganger Kate McKinnon.

In this viral challenge, Lopez can be seen pulling some dance moves from her repertoire in a white dress and Gucci belt. In a sudden change, Rodriguez copies her dance moves while wearing her dress, as Lopez films the second half in his suit.

The video’s made a splash online. Loyal fans of all ages flocked to Twitter to share in the joke and applaud A-Rod’s commitment to the bit with earrings and makeup.

“The fact that you put the earrings in shows the commitment,” @StephenJosiah13 wrote in a tweet.

The obvious height and size differential wasn’t enough to foil this challenge for the couple. Lopez’s dress was stretchy enough to stand up to the test.

“Alex stretching the dress but still relationship goals,” @xjorgeL_ wrote.

However, not everyone was a fan.

“There should be an age limit on TikTok,” @TacoJay0 wrote.

Then there is this glaring detail: A key to the challenge is that the light is meant to flicker on and off, literally flipping the switch. Lopez and Rodriguez offer no flickers here.

“They didn’t even flip the switch,” @Zwooogy wrote.
