John Mayer Creates the Latest Social Media Craze, the #KyloRenChallenge

The stylemaster is at it again.

Stylemaster John Mayer is back at it again. Known for taking to his Snapchat to give out style advice, Mayer has taught fans everything from T-shirt care, grooming, and of course, how to tell if your Costco Kirkland 11 sneakers are fake. Now the singer-songwriter, guitarist, producer extraordinaire has created the latest craze to hit social media: the #KyloRenChallenge.

Taking to his personal Instagram account, Mayer posed shirtless à la Adam Driver in Star Wars: The Last Jedi with the hashtag #KyloRenChallenge. The scene from The Last Jedi involves Kylo Ren, played by Adam Driver, speaking to protagonist Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, without a shirt and wearing a pair of high-waisted trousers.

On that scene, director Rian Johnson stated:

“It’s all about those Force connection scenes. The keyword being intimacy. And the idea that this was a way to just, why not step that up? The idea that, what’s even more uncomfortable having a conversation face to face with a person you don’t want to, is if they’re half-naked during it, while you’re having to do it. And so it was just another way of kind of disrobing Kylo literally and figuratively a little bit more, and pushing that sense of these conversations becoming increasingly more intimate.”

Many Star Wars fans followed Mayer’s lead and posted their own #KyloRenChallenge on Instagram.
