Nicholas Fraser recently conquered the Internet with a hilarious Vine song entitled “Why You Always Lying.” The soulful call-out jam has over 25 million loops, and the extended version on Instagram has 8,700 likes, along with nearly 3,000 comments.

As BuzzFeed points out, the song is now being used to calling out the fibbers of the world. Guys who claim they’re not like other guys? (Why you lying?( Friend that says they’re gonna call you back? (Why you lying?) The song is perfect for these all-too-common moments, even if the original Instagram video is specifically about claiming ownership of luxury items.

But most importantly, Fraser’s anthem of truth is so universal and is so damn catchy that it’s being played in clubs. People are even singing along.

First memes at college football games, now this? What a time to be alive.
