This may be a coincidence, but they were not the first to recreate the picture recently. Prominent rappers J. Cole and Drake became the first to recreate the picture. However, IShowSpeed and Adin Ross put their little twist on the picture to entertain the fans.

In November 2022, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi broke the internet when they posed together. The two soccer stars posted an image of themselves playing chess on top of a Louis Vuitton luggage. Furthermore, both posted the image on their respective Instagram accounts, breaking the internet just before the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Now, following his idol, IShowSpeed recreated the image alongside Adin Ross.

But the two of them put their personal touch on it. They did not have Louis Vuitton luggage or a chessboard nearby, so they improvised. They recreated the image using a Connect 4 setup. While fans are loving this recreation, Drake and J. Cole beat them to it. The two rappers recently recreated the scene for their latest music video, ‘First Person Shooter’.
