Instead of the traditional crawl most Star Wars films run in the beginning, a Reddit user proposed a hilarious record-scratching moment to open the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story.

The video quickly shot to the front page of Reddit, it was so popular.

It is highly unlikely Solo will have a crawl, as it was done away with for the first Star Wars stand-alone, Rogue One. But this fan-made video idea would be an instant classic.

Basically, it is a record scratch "How did I get here?" moment with "Teenage Wasteland (Baba O`Riley)" by The Who playing.

Solo stars Alden Ehrenreich as the iconic space smuggler Han Solo (first made famous by Harrison Ford) and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian (first played by Billy Dee Williams).

The first trailer for Solo was recently released, and fans were intrigued by multiple aspects of the film, including a bubbling excitement for Glover as Lando.

The first peek at the stand-alone film was greatly anticipated, especially since original helmers Christopher Miller and Phil Lord were fired last summer after clashing with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan. Oscar-winning director Ron Howard took over the project and masterfully built up the hype through posting tiny set teases on his Twitter account.

Solo will be out in theaters May 25.
