John Mayer sports high-waisted trousers in tribute to Star Wars' Kylo Ren

He began a new Instagram challenge.

Singer John Mayer has donned a pair of very high-waisted trousers in reference to a famous scene from the new Star Wars film.

In The Last Jedi, conflicted villain Kylo Ren is seen topless in a pair of dark trousers, that come up far above his belly button.

The image was made famous when it was inadvertently texted to Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda the day his musical opened in London.

Miranda shared a screenshot of the text message on Twitter, which was followed by an apology from the sender, who said they got the wrong number.

Miranda captioned it: “Hard to escape Star Wars today. Just got this text.”

Mayer adopted the look in his own photograph on Instagram, captioning it: “#kylorenchallenge.”
