The whole internet was convinced Jay Z was out with one of the Chuckle Brothers last night

This should be real.

THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT title fight between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko in Wembley captivated the sporting world last night.

But on the internet, there was only one story.

This photo of Jay Z and one of the Chuckle Brothers apparently chilling out together in the crowd

Before the fight had even started, it became a source of comedy for anyone who came across it. Barry from the Chuckle Brothers and Jay Z – the most unlikely double act

So many questions spiralled about how such a pair ended up even having a chat.

It was proof that 2017 was one upping 2016 in the weirdness stakes

It became one of the most viral tweets of the year… even though it’s completely Photoshopped

Yes, sadly Jay Z was not out with a Chuckle Brother last night – the photo was originally between the rapper and boxer Andre Ward taken by Getty in 2015

It was originally made by Paddy Power back in 2015

But, for one fleeting moment, hundreds of thousands of people believed that this meeting took place

What would have happened if it were real? We can only dream

We didn’t want this to be debunked

The internet is a powerful tool

Jay Z was actually at the Wearable Art Gala in LA last night

Would it match the craic on a night out with one of the Chuckle Brothers? Unlikely.
