Indiana Jones is getting the lecture entrance he deserves.

Doctor Jones had a day job as an archaeology professor, but this modern-day version of Harrison Ford‘s famous explorer instead teaches computer applications at Kent State University. He happens to wear a fedora that makes him look like Indiana Jones, and he probably gets compared to Ford’s character a lot.

With a new semester and a class full of fresh faces, someone decided to play the Indiana Jones theme song as he walked to his podium, which echoed even more in the large lecture hall.

As it turns out, the professor had a sense of humor about it. He’s likely heard and seen it all.

“He sort of chuckled to himself and then started the lesson,” wrote a redditor who claimed to have been in the class when it happened. “Not really a reaction at all.”

There’s no word on whether the KSU professor travels around the world trying to collect computer data to unravel digital mysteries.
