A mural on the wall of Ballarat burger restaurant Boss Burger Co. has received close to 100,000 likes on Twitter after being posted by a traveller from Melbourne yesterday.
The photo of the mural, which features celebrities and character such as Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Tony Soprano, Beyonce and Conor McGregor, was posted by Twitter user @Awkonaut and received more than 95,000 likes and 8000 retweets by Monday evening despite Awkonaut having just 127 followers.
"Last night we stopped in a burger joint with this mural on the wall and I couldn't tear my eyes away from it," the tweet said.
Boss Burger Co front of house staff member Hannah Patterson said she saw the viral tweet while on her break after the company's social media staff took advantage of it on their Instagram page.
"I've had a couple customers mention it since I came off my break that they'd seen it online and it was beautiful in person because it's really lifelike in person," she said.
"I know there's been some retweets from people saying they're keen to come down so that'll bring some business in which is good.

"We've just had the Begonia Festival so we were pretty busy already but by the looks of it, it'll get a little busier now with the tweet going viral which will be good for the business.
"If people wanted to come down and have a look, you're more than welcome to take photos and have a burger and appreciate the cool artwork that we've got."
Awkonaut could not be reached for a comment after he muted notifications as the tweet started go viral.
