The latest piece of street art has appeared on the streets of Bristol - depicting Donald Trump sharing a passionate kiss with Boris Johnson.
The giant mural of the US presidential hopeful and the former Mayor of London, was painted on Westmoreland House in Stokes Croft.
Around it is the message, 'NOT #INFORTHIS? Register to vote on the EU referendum now!'.
The mural, entitled 'The kiss of death' created by Bristol artists Paintsmiths, hopes to encourage those who are 20 to 30 to register to vote.
Boris Johnson is one of the biggest names campaigning for Britain to leave the European Union, while the potential Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has also backed a Brexit.
The painting has caused a stir on Twitter as well.

Around 150 campaigners have staged a protest march across Bristol to try to persuade the council to reject development plans for a derelict site in Stokes Croft.
Westmoreland House and the Carriageworks have stood empty for nearly 30 years and now a London based company wants to turn them into more than 100 flats.
Jonty Messer reports.
The renovation of one of Bristol's longest-standing eyesores has moved a step closer with the appointment of a housing association to oversee redevelopment work. Westmoreland House and the neighbouring Carriageworks on Stokes Croft have been left derelict and vandalised for many years.
Bristol City Council has appointed Knightstone Housing to oversee the eventual building work which it's hoped will transform the site into homes, businesses and public areas.
Councillor Mark Bradshaw, Assistant Mayor with responsibility for strategic housing and planning, said: “We still have a long way to go to bring this gateway site, which has lain derelict far too long, back into use but we are a significant step closer now.
The city council has drawn up plans to compusorily purchase the buildings if the private owners fail to agree on terms to sell.
