Who would’ve thought that a WNBA mascot has some serious moves?

The New York Liberty’s beloved elephant mascot Ellie took TikTok by storm this week by performing the “Bongos” challenge set to the tune of Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s latest collaboration. In the clip, the mascot is backed by two dancers as all three flawlessly execute the high-energy choreography from the song’s music video.

Eventually, Cardi herself caught wind of the viral clip and retweeted it, giving her stamp of approval by writing, “Put me to shame …I love it.”

“Bongos” is Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s second collaboration following their record-breaking “WAP,” but Cardi previously revealed that the new collaboration is not meant to be a part two. “I wonder how people are gonna react to this vibe because they’re really, like, expecting ‘WAP,’ like, ‘oh, here they go again talking this and that,’” she told DJ Whoo Kid during his Whoo’s House podcast. “We are talking a little, you know, about some p—y, but not like ‘WAP’ type of stuff.”

The track peaked at No. 4 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. In the tracking week of Sept. 8 – 14, “Bongos” launched with 16.8 million official U.S. streams, according to Luminate, leading to a No. 3 entrance on the R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs chart and yields Cardi B’s 14th top five effort and Megan Thee Stallion’s seventh such hit on the list. The song also sold 20,000 downloads in the same period and debuts at No. 1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales list.
