Thanks to Vanilla Ice, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have a long, storied history of mixing it up with some rap tunes. You’ll be pleased(?) to know the trend continues with the reboot.

The latest trailer for the Michael Bay-produced film, directed by Jonathan Liebesman, is set to the tune of Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J and Ty Dolla $ign’s “Shell Shocked,” which is pretty fitting considering the subject matter.

Though your mileage might vary on the soundtrack, the trailer itself shows off a good bit of new footage, including some wild rocket-skateboard action and a boatload of shell-sliding moves through the sewers and streets of the big city. There’s also a bit more humor present, which helps even out the tone.

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett and Tony Shalhoub. The film hits theaters Aug. 8.
