Not only was I a member of the green table – a table assigned only to the brightest and most gifted youngsters (I think they stuck the idiots on red) – but I was also a dangerously talented singer.
I’ve started bragging so I might as well finish – I was the little boy in the Snowman (the one that sings “We’re Walking In The Air” in a really high pitch), and all the ladies loved me. I learned my words like a good boy, practiced the song until I was blue in the face and nailed it on the night (day).
I only wish I had the quick-thinking mind to scrap it off and sing the Imperial March, though. Not only would that have been infinitely cool but my legacy at the school would have been cemented forever more.
Fortunately for us and the rest of the internet, this next little fella’ did just that, going viral recently after hijacking a performance of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to give his own rendition of the Imperial March from Star Wars.
The confidence to do that. Legend.
Twitter user Erin Gibson blessed social media with the video, which even shows the opportunistic performer swatting away his sister to the right of him, mid-song.

The bit where he gently nudged the girl away killed me 😂 “I’ve got this don’t worry”

That’s not the imperial March, that’s quite clearly “twinkle twinkle little death star”

Even Mark Hamill, who famously played Luke Skywalker, retweeted it.

Objectively, the Imperial March is 100% better than Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and this kid knows it.
Mark my words, he’s going places.
Doctor, Prime Minister, although hopefully not evil emperor/Sith Lord.

Charismatic, witty, charming, engaging - four things Joshua Rogers will never be. Thankfully, he’s a semi-competent writer, who, after graduating university with two mostly pointless degrees, joined The Hook two years ago. He subsequently honed his writing skills over the course of several sex-related articles, bringing a very public shame to his family's good name.
