Just make yourself a "dang quesadilla" and get ready to celebrate the cult-classic film, Napoleon Dynamite.

Napoleon Dynamite is 20 years old this summer, and while you could spend all day chatting with babes in cyberspace, we suggest celebrating the occasion with a movie night. Currently, Napoleon Dynamite is available to stream on Hulu.

Everyone is getting in on the 20-year milestone celebration. Actor and comedian Jon Heder, who plays the titular character, posted about the anniversary on his Instagram. In a short clip, Heder and Efren Ramirez (who plays Pedro in the film) go back to some of the most iconic filming spots.

Heder's caption reads, "Today is the official 20th anniversary of the date when Napoleon Dynamite hit theaters - June 11th, 2004. Efren and I were fortunate to get the opportunity to return to the original place where the magic was born. There’s a semi-modern sheen on Preston now, but the undeniable layer of crust is still there and we love it! Tots up. #napoleondynamite

One of the most devastating scenes in the movie is the moment Napoleon's classmate Randy demands, "Napoleon, give me some of your tots!" and when Randy doesn't get his way, he kicks and crushes Napoleon's pocket full of tater tots. Popular potato brand Ore-Ida knows the importance of tots and teamed up with Heder to make a pair of pants with a special tot-protecting pouch. While the lightweight joggers sold out on the day of release, today June 17, we believe these pants will get restocked so you can enjoy delicious tots without worrying about them being smashed by stray kicks.
