Ludacris's new single "Vitamin D" features a guest appearance from Ty Dolla $ign and a video in which he is seen displaying a curiously CGI-ed torso. Jokes about his "GTA abs" flowed on Twitter as soon as the visuals dropped.

Upon further inspection of that Ludacris video, he left out a whole part where you can see him with no abs looool pic.twitter.com/wtGEMQCfSV— Nier:AutomaChance (@LordChancePants) April 10, 2017
Ludacris took the responses in good humor to his "ludicrously ignorant" video though, informing his followers that the effect was deliberate and supposed to look a little over the top and unbelievable.
It's ok they slow RT @chris_oneto: he's supposed to have CGI & he looks at them at the end of the video & sees em gone. It's intentional— Ludacris (@Ludacris) April 11, 2017
This isn't the first time Ludacris has taken advantage of some trickery to look a little more ripped, as anyone who remembers the glorious "Get Back" video will testify.
