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.
Rip 2017. Overall I've had a very good year. Spent the year with the most amazing girl in the world, made new friends, and had a great time with all my friends I already had. I've grown as a person, developed new interests, and all around had a good time. Not sure what the future holds, but hopefully it will be bright. #happynewyear #2k18 #kylorenchallenge
