HOUSTON – A photo that shows Houston's iconic "Be Someone" sign repainted to say "Be Altuve" has been going viral on social media, leaving many Astros fans wondering if the image was real or if it was created with Photoshop.

We had to see it with our own eyes, therefore KPRC drove by around 3:30 p.m. Monday to check out the artwork, and it turned out that the image was indeed created using the magic of Photoshop.

Although some Houstonians loved the idea, others thought the original art work should remain the same.

"Okay, yeah that's cute but make sure you switch it back though," wrote Facebook user Joshua Williamson.

"If you're going to be someone, Altuve is not a bad choice," wrote Twitter user Brian Perroni.

The photo is the work of James Glassman from the Houstorian.

"We all woke up Sunday with so much love for Altuve," said Glassman. "It was an easy decision to make the alteration, at least with pixels."

José Altuve, Houston Astros second baseman, gave the team their ticket to the World Series following his walk off homer in Game 6 of the American League Championship Series against the New York Yankees.
