Users also began posting parodies outside the Twitter reply thread, often using the hashtag #Viewsfromthe6, which is also used for general discussion about the album.[5] The meme was covered in several popular news outlets, including the music magazine Fader[6] and the Toronto television statement CTV.[7]

On April 25th, the official Twitter for the CN Tower confirmed that the photo was in fact photoshopped. The tweet gained 350 retweets. Generator

Also on April 25th, 2016, the website[8] was launched by the Toronto-based media company The Young Astronauts, which provides a web application allowing users to generate their own parody images of the album cover (shown below).


Meanwhile, the company launched the @drizzysviews[10] Instagram feed, featuring parody images created with the web app (shown below). The following day, the site was submitted to the /r/Toronto[9] subreddit, where several users replied with various images made with the generator.
