Do you remember Mambo No 5, the hit song from 1999 by Lou Bega that named a lot of women in its catchy chorus? Well, now the tune lives on thanks to the internet as someone has created a virtual escape room inspired by Bega's jam.

The escape room (appropriately name Chamber No 5) was created by Jimmy Chang and takes place in a nearly featureless room. Much like how escape rooms work, there aren't really any directions. You just have to use your head to figure out how to get out of there.

It starts after you "take on step left" and then "one step right" with Mambo No 5 soon playing. However, upon taking a look around, you'll notice the wall on the back room that features the scribbled out names of the women in the song with "you" written in giant letters will begin to inch forward.

The room also features a computer screen, a pair of outstretched hands and the writings "touch the sky" on a wall but that's about it. Players are left to click around to figure out how to solve the game and get out of the virtual room before being crushed by the enclosing wall. As it gets closer, the song also gets more frantic so time is of the essence.
