In Case Shirtless Kylo Ren Wasn't Enough For You, There's Now The #KyloRenChallenge

Yes, this is now a thing, apparently.

Whether you were a fan or not, chances are you probably saw The Last Jedi because, well, A LOT of people did.


It's now the highest-grossing film of 2017, beating out the record that had been held previously by Beauty and the Beast for most of the year.

And, if you did see Last Jedi, then you probably recall there was a lot of hype around Kylo's now iconic shirtless scene.

I need to see more shirtless kylo in IX, JJ! 😂😍 #reylo #rey #kyloren

Unforgettable, tbh.

Well, in an apparent ~response~ to this notorious scene, John Mayer has created the #KyloRenChallenge. Which I guess is basically just about wearing high-waisted black pants and going shirtless?

And, of course, fans have CAUGHT. ON.

IDK, I'm kind of loving this?



Yes, sir.

Red Swiffer mop > Red lightsaber? SURE!

Of course, there's a ~theory~ out there that Kylo isn't even wearing high-waisted pants, but actually a bandage over his old wound.

kylo ren isn’t wearing high wasted pants, it’s a huge black bandage for the wound from chewie’s bowcaster

But, I DON'T CARE. I prefer the idea of Kylo Ren being a true intergalactic style icon and I am here for the #KyloRenChallenge.


Oh, 2017. May your memory live on in the folds of Kylo Ren's high-waisted pants.
