Some are even suggesting that Al Green should start doing ads for Walgreens! The meme has become so popular, many people are saying they will never look at Walgreens the same or won't be able to enter one of their stores without humming an Al Green tune to themselves!
Others said they found it amazing that Al Green was the one who tweeted the photo.
