Sometimes you have to wonder what's going on in the Keys.

This weekend, there was a 500-person underwater music festival in the National Marine Sanctuary six miles south of Big Pine Key, which looked like a Little Mermaid revival concert with scuba equipment.

Aside from actually playing songs from The Little Mermaid, "famed" underwater musicians such as "Eel-vis Presley," "Bob Marlin," and "Joss Stone Crab" also played other ocean-themed music like the Beatles' "Yellow Submarine" and Jimmy Buffett's "Fins," according to the Associated Press.

Of course, there were mermaid outfits and people using conch shells as instruments.

Check out the video of the underwater music festival below:

To quote one YouTube commenter, "What da f*ck did I just watch?"
