Today, Rockstar Games decided to shatter everyone’s minds and release a teaser image that showcases several cowboys walking in front of a sunset. It’s instantly recognizable thanks to the red background which can only really signal that a new Red Dead game is on the way. This, of course, caused a flood on social media as almost everyone shed tears of gaming joy at this beloved franchises return.

However, the internet also decided to have a bit of fun with this image thanks to how much room the picture offers. Soon tons of alterations of this teaser photo appeared that poked fun in their own, unique way. Yet, fans of the series weren’t the only ones having a bit of fun at Rockstar’s expense as the official Final Fantasy XV Twitter decided to also join in. Rockstar only really has themselves to blame since they released a picture that’s begging to be photoshopped.
