Was the fourth with you on May 4? It most definitely was in the White House and at Facebook HQ. As fans across the globe celebrated the official 'Star Wars Day,' the hashtag #MayThe4BeWithYou was tweeted more than a million times, including the President of The United States.

The Obamas, never shy about getting jiggy with it, dance to Uptown Funk in a video tweeted by The White House's official account. Their dance partners - R2D2 and two Stormtroopers.
