Twitter can bring out the best (but usually the worst) in us, so we are very grateful for any moment when two completely unrelated corners of the internet delightfully intersect with one another.
On Saturday, Mark Hamill—a very frequent Twitter user—tweeted out what he thought was something random. And to those not tuned in to pop culture, it might not seem like much.
"Thank you, next"#TwitterTest4Twits— Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) November 10, 2018
But it does have relevance to music fans. Hamill’s “Thank you, next” tweet, when stylized as “thank u, next,” is the name of Ariana Grande’s newest song that she released earlier this month and has already achieved meme status.
Soon enough, Grande caught wind that Hamill had tweeted the title of her newest song.
i can’t breathe https://t.co/4prdOCR1Qi— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) November 11, 2018
After his followers filled him in, Hamill offered a little course correction. He might not have known that “thank u, next” was the title of a song, but he is aware of who Grande is.
You know you're out of it when someone suggests you tweet what you think is just a random phrase that turns out to be the title of the new album by @ArianaGrande, one of the most popular artists in the history of showbiz. #ImSorryAri #ItsUnotYou https://t.co/0VztULKx3D— Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) November 11, 2018
Grande, to put it lightly, couldn’t contain herself after seeing Hamill’s compliment.
i’m gonna tattoo this to my forehead https://t.co/5JSOXVVfjI— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) November 11, 2018
honest to god i’m not okay rn https://t.co/KViZnmTU8m— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) November 11, 2018
It might be nothing more than a lovely Twitter interaction, but it’s always fun to imagine that Grande’s so popular that even the galaxy far, far away knows about her.
