[SPOILERS for Star Wars: The Force Awakens ahead.]
There were many stand out moments in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as well as a whole load of great new characters. One point that definitely stood out was Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and his temper. To put it mildly, the big, bad villain seems to have issues with his temper that would rival that of most hormonal teenagers.
Indeed, his temper tantrums were also the cause of some real humor in the film; not least the moment when two Stormtroopers in the First Order rounded the corner in the Starkiller Base, only to see Kylo Ren smashing everything to smithereens with his lightsaber. Without a word, they turned around and swiftly walked off in the opposite direction.
Sure, Kylo Ren is deadly, menacing and, it would appear, without any morals, but at times he also appears petulant, sulky and explosive. Like someone needs to come and put him in time out. Where’s his father when you need him? Oh…
We could debate long and hard over whether his temper undermines his villainous status, but that’s for another time and place because we have a fantastic new parody to watch, highlighting how Kylo Ren might react in everyday situations. Take a look, above.
Not only does this parody demonstrate some great pixel art, but it’s also (probably) a pretty accurate interpretation of how Kylo Ren would react each time. The Star Wars clip touches on his family issues, which we know run deep for him, as well as voicing most people’s thoughts on getting seated at the bar. Also, the thought of Kylo Ren hanging out with Daniel Craig is pretty cool, no?
Kudos to Bill Bergen for creating this, and ending our 2015 with a good laugh.
