The advert, which was initially posted on Green Day's official Twitter feed but has since been deleted, also specifies the album has "no features", "no Swedish songwriters" and is "100% pure uncut rock". Each statement is also underlined by a line of cocaine, complete with a rolled-up bill in case there was any doubt about the reference.

The Needle Drop posted the image on Twitter alongside the comment: "Green Day bringing the cringe into 2020", sparking a stream of edited versions mocking the billboard in the replies.
