Add John Williams’ Imperial March to literally anything, and it becomes momentous and scary.

Since 2014, the Japanese city of Yokohama has hosted a Pikachu Parade in celebration of the most famous character from the Pokémon franchise. You might have already seen clips of the giant dancing yellow army on YouTube.

Now, someone with exceptional vision has matched up one of the videos with the Imperial March from John Williams’s score to Star Wars, and it is really quite disturbing.

Star Wars soundtracked by Holst's 'Mars, the bringer of War' is actually incredible >

We never thought a giant yellow PolyFoam blob could be so imposing.
