Even before Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond hits theaters on July 22, the parodies are rolling out. According to the film’s Scotty, Simon Pegg, this one is already at the head of the pack.

YouTube user Dennis Hurley posted “Star Trek: Bed Bath & Beyond,” which spoofs the newest addition to the franchise, Sofia Boutella’s Jaylah. As the title suggests, the white-skinned alien goes on a trip to the retail store with her dad on Father’s Day.

“And the award for earliest, funniest, sweetest parody vid goes to [Hurley] for this glimpse into Jaylah’s home life,” Pegg wrote on Twitter.
