Quarantine has people reaching new levels of boredom. Restless from staying at home for weeks on end, creative internet users have been demonstrating all kinds of interesting and fun hacks to use while you're stuck indoors. TikTok user cuboxofficial demonstrated a unique computer hack that will allow you to watch Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope like you've never seen it before.

"Here's something you can do on Mac and PC," the user explains, before typing a series of commands. The result is that you can watch the entire duration of A New Hope in ASCII text, a code that represents text in computers and other devices. You can check out the TikTok in question here.

The ASCII text makes the 1977 film look almost like an old video game, giving it a fun, retro effect. Even if you can't figure out how to make the film appear in ASCII text, you can always watch the originals or sit back, relax, and focus on the great parts of Star Wars by checking out this May the Fourth celebration compilation!
