The Force is strong in Beyonce’s twins. And the producers of The Daily Show totally know it.

As news of Beyonce and Jay Z’s double baby joy was busting the Internet, the Daily Show shared a Star Wars-themed meme to mark the special occasion.

“The Empire has taken power, the Dark Side is rising, and suddenly our Queen is carrying twins!," reads the caption accompanying a montage of a preggers Queen Bey with Jay Z looking on. The strapline "A New Hope" is slapped across the picture, for those of you who missed the gag.  

With some further analysis, maybe the comparison between hip-hop’s First Family and the power clan of George Lucas’ space opera is a little on the dark side. We all know it turned out bad for Queen Padmé Amidala, and does this all suggest that Jay Z is Darth Vader?

Check it out below.
