Reddit user ‘smallgoblin’ has ascended to Reddit royalty after posting a video clip that shows the user converting the movie series’ ‘Cantina Theme’ into a mathematical equation.
“It started with x+4…and I couldn’t unhear it,” smallgoblin wrote of the experiment, “Instead of doing my math homework I figured out what the Cantina Theme would sound like if your instrument was a pencil.”
The formulaic result would be x + 4783 – x + 4v|VE| (x + 4)(f – 711) = A, an answer that when worked through comes out to be ~299,792,457, or in other words, the speed of light, when measured in meters per second.
Smallgoblin’s post has since become the fifth most-upvoted post of all time in the history of the Star Wars subreddit.

The Star Wars franchise is undeniably an integral part of American pop-culture, with an almost fanatical fandom that is religiously involved in every aspect of the Star Wars brand from the movies to the sought-after merchandise.
Given the breadth of Stars Wars, it’s little surprise that that many also happen to be DJs — as espoused by the number of remixes of the Star Wars theme that are available on the internet. However, the latest such “remix” is rather bizarre: it’s made exclusively from the audio effects found in the films.
This odd creation is the work of Eclectic Method, a group that specializes in making music using sound effects, has been created to resemble a typical 90s rave track. Another interesting aspect is the video, which is synced to the moments throughout the films when the sounds were sampled.
