Indie sci-fi thriller Ex Machina gifted us with one of the greatest movie moments of 2015: Oscar Isaac‘s creepily well-choreographed dance scene to the disco track “Get Down Saturday Night.”

Ex Machina isn’t exactly a funny movie, but this particular scene stands out as a moment of surreal absurdity between long stretches of tension. And as it turns out, Oscar Isaac’s dance routine fits surprisingly well with a lot of other songs.

Twitter account @oscardances went viral this week with its collection of Ex Machina mashups, combining Oscar Isaac’s sweet disco moves with everything from the Star Wars theme to “Cotton Eye Joe.”





After watching these, we have one request. Please, in the name of all that is good and right in the world, let Poe Dameron have a dance scene in the next Star Wars movie.
