Star Wars fans ditch their shirts for #KyloRenChallenge
Star Wars fans on social media are recreating an iconic moment from 'The Last Jedi'.

If you follow any diehard Star Wars fans on Instagram, they're probably taking their shirt off, hiking up their pants and snapping a selfie.

It's all part of the #KyloRenChallenge, an homage to Adam Driver's so-called "beefcake moment" near the end of 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi.' In the shirtless scene seen 'round the world, a shredded Driver appeared shirtless, clad only in a pair of high-waisted black pants, and sent the film's fans into a frenzy.

Now they're getting in on the action and recreating Driver's look on social media. Men (and even some women, a dog and a baby) are stripping down and flexing for the camera:

"Waiting on the World to Change" singer John Mayer even got in on the fun.

While Driver himself has yet to respond to the challenge - he isn't on social media - 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' writer/director Rian Johnson told People magazine last month that Driver "knew he looked good" in the shirtless scene "because he'd been training hardcore for the past six months for [his] fight scenes."
