Last month, a Twitter user by the name of @edgette22 pointed out a pretty earth-shattering revelation about KFC's Twitter account.

KFC is known for its blend of 11 herbs and spices, so the 11 accounts they follow on Twitter are six people named Herb and the five Spice Girls. Pretty flipping awesome.

Several weeks later, KFC seems to still be capitalizing on the publicity. The fried chicken chain reportedly commissioned a painting for the dude who figured out their Twitter secret. And the painting is...not what you'd expect.

The image made it to the front page of Reddit Tuesday afternoon, and a quick glance at @edgette22's Twitter account proves the painting is for real. "Dreams DO come true. #GiddyUpColonel," he tweeted alongside photos of the painting. "Thanks @kfc."

According to one Redditor's comment, the painting is reportedly an ad, made by advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy. The agency has also made ads for Nike, Old Spice, Secret, Samsung, Coca-Cola, and many other popular brands.

But just because the stunt is an ad doesn't mean we love it any less. KFC, can you make one for us next?
