Yes, Thom Yorke and BB-8 were spotted having a moment on the red carpet at the film premiere this past weekend (December 9) in London.

Naturally, the internet is losing its mind over the adorable encounter. See photographic evidence and some of the best reactions to Yorke and BB-8's new friendship below.
