There's a new Star Wars Kid in town, and this one is absolutely adorable. A video a woman uploaded to Twitter this week is going viral. In the video, an adorable little boy in a blue button-up shirt stands between 2 other young children and sings the Imperial March from Star Wars. The video was taken a year ago, however it was just put on Twitter today. The boy is on a stage with his sister and cousin to sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, but instead he steals the show by piping up with his rendition of the Star Wars classic instead. Everyone in the audience it treated to his epic rendition of the iconic song that accompanies Darth Vader and the Dark Side in the epic Star Wars films.
Sometimes when I need to laugh, I think about the time my cousin’s son took over a group rendition of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to sing the Imperial March pic.twitter.com/wnjy2rZFFQ— erin gibson (@actuallyerin) May 26, 2019
The video was shared by Erin Gibson, the boys cousin, and has since gone viral, racking up tons of views and amassing some epic Twitter commentary. As of today, the video was sitting at roughly 142,000 retweets and 626,000 likes.
In the video, the adorable little boy starts channeling his inner dark side and sings the Imperial March with all the passion such a small child could muster. The other two children just kind of stand there, realizing that they have been a little upstaged. All three of them are certifiably adorable.
In the caption, proud Aunt Erin states "Sometimes when I need to laugh, I think about the time my cousin’s son took over a group rendition of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to sing the Imperial March". It certainly does make you chuckle, and the fact that this captured moment went viral is the proof.
The Twitter thread is veritable goldmine of Star Wars themed memes and tweets. Even the star of the original Star Wars films, Mark Hamill (a.k.a. Luke Sywalker himself) shared it and captioned that "the Dark Side is strong in him". It is, indeed!
This is just another example of the amazing versatility of these films that captured and continue to capture the hearts of people, young and old. As for this little guy, well he is certainly getting his time in the spotlight for an epic performance that people won't soon forget!
