We’ve covered a fair share of “clueless dads explain pop culture” over the years. There’s the father who tried to name every Game of Thrones character after watching the season three finale, and another one who attempted the same thing after the first season. Okay, so maybe Game of Thrones is too complicated for Internet Dads. Maybe Star Wars is more their speed.
On her Tumblr, Letícia Piroutek shared an intriguing Kylo Ren theory her father came up with after watching The Force Awakens, which made all the money. As far as crackpot conjectures goes, it’s not half-bad.
Spoilers, obviously, and all-caps, unfortunately.
