The force is strong with Justin Trudeau.

The Canadian prime minister posted an Instagram story of himself wearing mismatched Star Wars socks during a meeting with Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny in Montreal on Thursday.

Trudeau presumably chose the R2-D2 and C-3PO socks because it’s May the Fourth, or “Star Wars Day.”


Naturally, Star Wars fans on Twitter totally geeked out.

In the midst of it all, Trudeau himself responded with a closeup:

His socks appear to be this $20 pair from sock company Stance...

...and are not to be confused with these Trudeau-themed socks:

The prime minister is known for his bold sock choices, which have included a skull pattern for a U.S. Chamber of Commerce meeting and maple leaf socks for Canada Day celebrations last year.

The prime minister’s office said Trudeau’s tweets speak for themselves. Clearly, he’s a major fan.
