The new holiday McCafé cup at McDonald’s has gone viral on social media this week after a wiseguy took it from “nice” to “naughty” with just a few strokes of a pen.
The original holiday design reads “Warmest Greetings” over two white mittens and colorful snowflakes and stars.

However, with just a few squiggles of a blue pen to make the mittens look like hand, the cup now looks like a person spreading their butt cheeks for the camera.

Author Sam Sykes shared the image on Twitter and it has since been retweeted more than 13,000 times.
