25 May 2017, 14:38
Childish Gambino has found himself at the centre of the latest viral Twitter meme - specifically, his 2016 song 'Redbone'.
Internet users have been 'remixing' the popular track by altering the sound of the original instrumental, and adding different effects, filters and noises.
The new versions are then posted with imaginative - and often hilarious - accompanying captions.
Some target particular artists and producers, including 'Bad & Boujee' rapper Lil Uzi Vert.
