They say imitation is the highest form of flattery. But what do you call it when the person who’s being imitated uses a screenshot of the impersonator as his single’s cover art? Prince, who just caught up with the rest of the developed world and joined Twitter, recently posted the “Breakfast Can Wait” cover which features not Prince, but Dave Chappelle. The image is from Chappelle’s Show sketch “Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories–Prince,” in which Chappelle played the legendary singer. Rather than describing the 2004 sketch and ruining the fun, we’ll just let you watch it.
