As common as a cold, social media users were quick to make comparisons.

The self-taught artist (who we surely all feel a bit sorry for) says he might repaint it after seeing the criticism, telling the BBC: "I'm looking at the reaction right now. It's not very nice to see people talking about me as an artist.
"I'm going to get a picture of it, so it will be fine, but I've got to do what I've got to do."
Like when we receive crap bubble bath at Christmas, it's the thought that counts, right? RIGHT?
