Paul McCartney’s “Let ‘Em In,” a number 3 hit in 1976, is the unlikely song used in a brand new trailer for the USA Network series Mr. Robot.
In the trailer, anxiety and depression riddled genius Elliot Alderson (played by Rami Malek) is sitting at his computer in his apartment. And we hear well… a lot of knocking at his door (we’ll presume he doesn’t have a doorbell, so no one can ring it). We don’t, however, know if he’ll let ’em in. But the poppy McCartney song offers a borderline-funny counterpoint to the very dark tone of the series.

The show, which also stars Christian Slater in the title role (well, it’s complicated, we’ll suggest that you binge watch season 1 at your earliest connivence) announced, via this teaser, that season 2 starts on July 13.
