Everyone went gaga about Deepika Padukone and Vin Diesel's recent selfie (or was it a backfie, and will that be a thing now?), (correctly) assuming that it was her announcement of her imminent Hollywood debut in XXX: Xander Cage Returns:

But her fellow actors decided to get up to some mischief.

Akshay Kumar posted his version of the viral photo, in which he and actors Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmuk spoofed Deepika's unique pose.

They dubbed their version 'Vin Petrol'.

Soon after Akshay posted the picture, 'Vin Petrol' began trending on Twitter. Riteish made sure to add to the pun:

While some were not amused...

Others thought the spoof deserved a sequel:

Some hinted that the boys could be jealous...

Others brought in a Om Shanti Om reference to this already punny situation:
