When the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released last week, people immediately spazzed. I, for one, enjoyed the cocktease of a trailer. It gave us glimpses of little things with no context whatsoever — the true definition of a teaser trailer. However, it did give us enough to chew on. More than that, true to Internet form, it gave everyone a chance to quickly say what they hated about it and how “stupid” the movie is going to be based on the 88 seconds. Specifically, people lost their shit in more ways than one over the three-pronged lightsaber handled by a mysterious hooded figure. Here’s the trailer in case you missed it:

I don’t mind the tri-lightsaber. It’s cool enough. Whatever. I’m too excited about that soccer ball R2 unit. I’m sure the movie isn’t based on that lightsaber so maybe people should just not judge the entire movie on that.

There were immediate memes and highfalutin discussions about said lightsaber (Stephen Colbert’s analysis being one of the most entertaining), but the one Internet bit about it that I thoroughly enjoyed was from the artist isteef on Instagram:
