The dark side is strong with this one.

A video posted to Twitter Sunday morning by Minneapolis-based Twitter user Erin Gibson of her cousin's son singing Star Wars' "Imperial March" instead of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" has gone viral.

According to Erin, the video was taken a year ago at a family talent show. In it, her cousin Gina's son sings "The Imperial March" from Star Wars instead of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" like the other kids -- including his older sister -- next to him.

She had posted the photo once before, but it only received a handful of likes. After having a particularly rough week, she decided to post it again in the hopes that it might brighten someone else's day. She didn't expect the video to take off the way that it did.

At time of writing, the video has garnered over 7.8 million views, 2.5k comments and 133k shares. It's also been noticed by Star Wars' own Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Chance the Rapper and Minnesota's own Jana Shortal
