How do you stop a baby crying? By playing Star Wars’ Imperial March, of course

This young sci-fi fan was instantly cheered by the villainous anthem


New parents will try almost anything to get their baby to stop crying – special holds, swaying, soothing tones – but this new dad has found a fail-safe and incredibly simple way to put a stop to his newborn son’s wails…


The Imperial March from Star Wars.

You might expect a tiny baby to be more soothed by nursery rhymes than the Darth Vader entrance theme, but, what can we say? Micah Hayman clearly has a very young sci-fi fan under his roof.


If only parenting was always that simple, eh?
