Toronto Mayor Rob Ford just can’t seem to stay out of the headlines.

On Saturday, the infamous politician — known for his heavy drug and alcohol use — attempted to dispense some Daylight Savings Time advise to his followers on Twitter.

Only problem? He instructed them to turn back the clock the wrong direction.

Quickly after, Ford was mocked by users.

The incorrect tweet was eventually scrubbed from the account and replaced with a new, more accurate one.

Daylight Saving Time starts this evening, turn your clocks forward and change smoke alarm batteries before going to bed tonight.
