For several weeks, a masked Mandalorian and his Baby Yoda has been zooming around the streets of Los Angeles, spreading some good cheer during the pandemic.

As reported by NBC Los Angeles, this fully costumed bounty hunter has been speeding along on his electric skateboard, with the Child in tow:

The man behind the homemade mask is comedian Tim Brehmer, who told NBC he's out of work and his goal was simply to make people laugh during a tough time.

"This whole thing got started because I'm a big box of stupid and I love making people laugh," he told NBC. "...with some people with depression, a pill can help, with some people therapy can help, with me, this is my therapy."

Some on Twitter have urged The Mandalorian showrunner Jon Favreau to give Brehmer something to do in the Disney+ hit's upcoming season 3.

And, yes, he has been pulled over by the cops.

"I'll just ride behind traffic with everybody," he said. "Police officers think it's hysterical. I've been pulled over once... [the officer was] like, 'Why do you think you can just go through a red light?'"

Now all he needs is some Fleetwood Mac.
