(LOS ANGELES) -- Posters of a tattooed — and muscular — Ted Cruz have mysteriously appeared in several locations around Los Angeles.
According to Breitbart News, the poster carries the following message: "BEVERLY HILTON / Ted Cruz's So-Cal 'Blacklisted & Loving It' Tour" with Saturday's date.
Breitbart's Kerry Picket reports that the posters have appeared "in front of popular L.A. clubs: the Viper Room, the Seventh Veil, Whiskey-a-Go-Go, as well as on car windshields and utility poles among other places."
And as it turns out, the Republican Texas senator was scheduled to be in Los Angeles this weekend to receive an award from the conservative Claremont Institute.
For his part, Cruz is having a little fun with the strange images, tweeting: "Saw this, but noticed an error. So I wanted to make one thing clear: I don't smoke cigarettes."
