And about three dozen other cringe-inducing hits

Laura Dern is Amilyn Holdo in THE LAST JEDI.
Vice Admiral Holdo status = not amused
David James /Lucasfilm Ltd.

Spoiler alert: Watching this scene set to this music won’t spoil the story of the film, but it may seriously affect how you feel about it.

Twitter-er @rachlikesbands edited a 30-second clip of the throne room throwdown in Star Wars: The Last Jedi to “Toxic,” Britney Spears’ 2004 tribute to loving dangerously.

Some of you may wish to avert your eyes now.

The party’s just getting started, folks. Here’s the scene set to “Footloose,” by Kenny Loggins.

And “Africa” by Toto — later fronted by Joseph Williams, son of John (as in that John Williams) and composer of “Lapti Nek.”

Are you still hanging in there? Let’s see how long you can last against “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers.

And for your mom, “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes, from Dirty Dancing.

And finally, the coup de grace:

@rachlikesbrands has threatened post more over the next few hours. In all the thread comprises 39 videos (two by a contributor) and racked up thousands of likes and retweets. (The thread even caught a like from The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson.)

That is not bad work. But please, no more ...

Update: Oh crap, as this was going to press, here is “Let It Go” from Frozen.
