Before you enjoy another round of spectacular car chases and one-liners from Chris Bridges in the latest Fast and Furious movie, titled The Fate of the Furious, please turn your attention to the latest music video from the man otherwise known as Ludacris. On Monday, Luda released the visual for "Vitamin D," which also features the talents of Ty Dolla $ign. There's a lot going on in the video, and by a lot, I mean a lot of fake abs on the body of Ludacris, if that's even his body. Folks, whether or not he's in on the joke, we've got a case of CGI abs. Poorly executed CGI abs.
Minimal acting was required for this look from Luda's co-star.
Naturally, Twitter is having a ball about Luda and his display, whatever it is.

The Fate of the Furious opens on Friday. No word on whether or not these CGI abs will make a cameo during an exciting car chase scene with The Rock, who most definitely has real deal abs.
Update 4/11, 2:40 p.m.: Eif Rivera, the director for the “Vitamin D” video, tells Mic that the CGI abs were intentional. “The chest was meant to be funny as Ludacris always makes cool fun videos. If you look at the entire video, he wakes up at the end upset his huge chest isn’t there anymore.” Additionally, the abs were the product of a collaboration between Ludacris, Rivera, and the visual effects company Gloria FX. According to a spokesperson, “The task was to make [the] chest hyperreal, but not cartoonish.”
Looks like Luda approved the fake abs - and all the jokes on Twitter. He's since joined in on the fun. Everybody wins.
