"You Know You Like It" by DJ Snake & AlunaGeorge on YouTube

French DJ and producer DJ Snake released a trap remix of the track in 2013, which was featured in the 2014 movie The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and has achieved more chart success in the United States and Europe than the original single. The song was uploaded to AlunaGeorge's SoundCloud on July 22, 2013 as an official remix of the song,[13] but was later released as a remix single on October 20, 2014.

Music video[edit]

The music video to accompany the newest version of the song with DJ Snake has a length of 4:33. The video's protagonist is an ostensible humanoid chimpanzee who has thoughts of suicide due to missing the love of his life and not fitting in. Through the video he seems frustrated with his life, stalking the Instagram of his love and selling drugs. He walks to a gentlemen's club carrying a gun. There, he gets a lap dance to forget his worries, but gropes the dancer and gets beaten up by the bouncers. Afterwards he comes to a realization and decides to change his ways. He throws the gun in the garbage.
