NEW YORK, Jan. 18 (UPI) -- The YouTube clip of Adam Driver reprising his Star Wars: The Force Awakens character Kylo Ren on this weekend's edition of Saturday Night Live has already gotten nearly 5 million views.

The 4 1/2-minute-long mini-movie shows the villainous leader Kylo Ren going undercover as Matt, a radar technician, at Starkiller Base in a spoof of the workplace-themed, reality show Undercover Boss.

"You get so caught up in restoring the galaxy to its rightful state that you miss what's going on behind the scenes," Driver as Ren explained to the television camera. "I'm looking forward to having some real talk with some real folks."

Ren is then seen disguised as Matt in a cafeteria trying to talk to employees, played by Bobby Moynihan and Taran Killam, about what they think of their boss. Later, Matt is berated by a supervisor portrayed by Leslie Jones, and has his wrench kicked across the floor by a Stormtrooper.

"I have a newfound respect for what my employees do," he confessed. "It's not as easy as I presumed."
