Twitter Is Obsessed with Thom Yorke and BB-8 at the 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Premiere
Radiohead aren't total newbies to the Star Wars universe, with the band's longtime producer and collaborator Nigel Godrich making a cameo as a Stormtrooper in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but a new friendship seems to be blossoming between the group's frontman and one of the film franchise's latest favourite characters.
 
Yes, Thom Yorke and BB-8 were spotted having a moment on the red carpet at the film premiere this past weekend (December 9) in London. The bespectacled singer sat down cross-legged on the red carpet, wagged his finger at the little droid, but then offered up what looked like sincere appreciation to the spherical robot.
 
Naturally, the internet is losing its mind over the adorable encounter. See photographic evidence and some of the best reactions to Yorke and BB-8's new friendship below.
 
Star Wars: The Last Jedi officially arrives in theatres on December 15.
