As well as spending its time last week giggling at an old Key & Peele sketch-turned-meme, Twitter’s attention was diverted by another viral gag titled “Street Dealer to Drug Lord.” The concept is simple: side-by-side pictures of an individual, documenting how they’ve changed over the years.

In the first picture, the celeb is seen in their more humble beginnings, with the second showing how they’ve glo’d up. Among the looks parodied is Christian Bale’s transformation into former Vice President Dick Cheney in his upcoming movie Vice, while another take pointed out once again how much JAY-Z looks like ex-NFL quarterback Troy Aikman.

Below is a roundup of the best of the “Street Dealer to Drug Lord” meme on Twitter.
