The White House posted a fun dance video to commemorate Star Wars Day late Wednesday.

The 22-second clip was released on the White House's official Facebook and Twitter accounts with the caption, "Dance. Or dance not. There is no try. #MayThe4thBeWithYou."

Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" sets in motion the impromptu dance party where President Obama can be heard saying "come on, stormtroopers," in which the suited soldiers join the first couple in a dance-off.

Not to be outdone, R2-D2 can also be seen in the background spinning its head back and forth grooving to the music.

May the 4th, as in "May the Fourth Be With You," has become a day to celebrate all things Star Wars, especially following last year's revival of the series with "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
