Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley received a strange proposal in February — but probably not the strangest one she’ll ever get — from a college student. In the video above, Kevin Carlock of Davidson College in North Carolina asked Ridley to accompany him to the school’s Spring Athlete’s Formal. Because asking celebrities to a dance via a viral video is definitely a thing now, whether you’re blue-ing yourself for Jennifer Lawrence or landing an actual date with Mila Kunis.

Ridley has now responded to the video, posting a completely understandable rejection letter on her Instagram which references both the final scene of The Force Awakens and the opening scene of Star Wars: Episode VIII, which is now filming.
