On Friday 29 the world will be blessed by the much anticipated fourth album by Drake, Views From The Six.
To get the buzz going, Drake posted on Twitter and gave his fans a sneak peak at the cover art. But things didn’t go according to plan, and it’s easy to see why.
According to Cosmopolitan, the album art shows a pretty surreal looking Drake sat on top of the CN Tower in Toronto draped in a duffel coat – but the photo just doesn’t look too real.

In fact it looks like someone’s used a stock image of the CN Tower and spent about five minutes on Photoshop trying to whip Drake into the mix.
Although a photographer has spoken out to say she took the picture herself, the good people of Twitter just don’t seem to give two fucks whether the photo is real or not – what they do care about however, is manipulating it into a full spectrum of random shit.
Here’s some of our favourites:

And this isn’t the first time Drake has been trolled brilliantly, back in 2014 a bizarre trend known as ‘Draking’ went viral which seen people sticking random photos of Drake onto handicap signs.
