Hilarious 'Kylo Ren' Challenge Goes Viral And Star Wars Fans Are Loving It

I don't know about anybody else but for me going back home for Christmas meant having a million and one discussions about the merits and faults of the most recent Star Wars film.

Christmas Eve. Boxing Day. That lull before the new year. Every time I went to the pub, it seemed that a discussion about Rey and Luke's relationship, or whether the Finn, Rose and BB-8 mission to Canto Bight casino really needed to be included in The Last Jedi, was on the tip of one of my mate's tongue. It gets people talking.

And even if you have your problems with Rian Johnson's movie, it's hard to deny that Kylo Ren's dilemma between light and dark - and more generally his characterisation - is one of its highlights.

However, that's not stopped fans taking the piss out of Adam Driver's character for one particular scene which saw Kylo and Rey using the force to communicate with one another.

In it we see a brooding Driver wandering around topless in what we can only presume is his bedroom. This is the scene I'm talking about.

And now people are emulating the scene and posting photos of themselves with incredibly high trousers and no shirt, alongside the caption #KyloRenChallenge. It really needs to be seen to be understood:

May the banter be with you, LADs.
