We challenge you to name a more iconic band than Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes. Or as you may know them, the yellow alien guys who play the Cantina Theme in Star Wars: A New Hope.
And as it turns out, you can play the Cantina Theme with nothing but a pencil. Twitter user Dani was doing her math homework when she noticed the equation she was working on sounded familiar. Have a listen. You'll need sound on, obviously.
Here it is with the music over the top.
But it doesn't end there. Here she is doing the Imperial March...
What is this magic?! Yes, social media was just as entranced as we were.
These two users were happy that the tweet was getting people to think about math.
I'm working towards being a math teacher and this has me so excited. Thank you for this.— Anpan 💜 Android 💜 Angel (@IdolFarFromHome) January 12, 2018
this is entirely ridiculous but I cannot properly convey how much I love it— new year new b (@ScrewItImIsaacB) January 12, 2018
Some people were more interested in what all that math actually meant.
This is usually the kind of thing I am doing when I tell someone I’m busy and can’t hang out 🤷🏻♀️— Liza Dixon ⚡️ (@lizadixon) January 12, 2018
Others wanted to go even further.
Some are calling for a record deal.
One person even managed to fool their parents with it.
Try this at home.
