Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is already an internet darling thanks to his rugged good looks and rock hard backside, but now he’s becoming a political icon in geek circles. Put simply: The sock game is strong in this one.

While meeting Ireland’s Prime Minister Enda Kenny, Trudeau rocked a pair of Star Wars socks with his fancy Prime Minister suit, with C-3PO and R2-D2 peeking out from his loafer. The meeting took place on May 4, which is (duh) Star Wars Day, so the sock choice wasn’t entirely random. With global politics on pretty much everyone’s minds these days, it’s nice to see that some things transcend politics. And hey, if anything can cut through the noise, its Star Wars.

Well done, Canada. Well done.

Also, umm, does this mean he’s part of the Resistance? …
