That didn't take long! Remember the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" trailer that dropped on Friday (and racked up 40 million hits in less than 72 hours, according to The Hollywood Reporter)? Well, it now has a Lego recreation. 

Actually, it has several. But the one that's really got everyone talking comes from YouTube user Snooperking, whose recreation of the trailer went up Saturday and has more than 2.1 million views of its own. 

Snooperking has added some "commentary" to the opening scene in which a helmet-free Stormtrooper pops up from off camera and scans the desert landscape around him.

"Tying my shoe," suggests Snooperking's notes before the Stormtrooper appears, and once he does: "Crap! The Oven!!!"

Check it out and, when you're done, enjoy a handful of other Lego creation stories we've covered recently:
