A (Netflix) star is born! Amy Schumer unveiled a new billboard on Tuesday (Feb. 19) to promote her upcoming stand-up comedy special on the streaming service, Amy Schumer Growing, and it might look a little familiar to moviegoers. The visual, which is currently displayed prominently on LA’s Sunset Boulevard, parodies the Ally billboard made famous by Lady Gaga in A Star Is Born.

Like the Gaga version, Schumer’s billboard depicts a close-up of the comedian’s face on a hazy pink-and-blue background with her first name splashed across the bottom in buttery-yellow block type.  

In January, a real-life version of the Ally billboard popped up next to LA’s Chateau Marmont hotel -- almost the exact spot it appears in the film -- and a bonus version of Amy’s spoof will appear practically alongside it starting Wednesday.

Check out the parody billboard above. Amy Schumer Growing will hit Netflix worldwide on March 19.
