Huge church statue in Mexico is being mocked for looking like Phil Collins

Social media users have been quick to point out the baby Jesus statue’s resemblance to former Genesis drummer Phil Collins.

A new statue of baby Jesus in Mexico is certainly raising the question.

Nearly 22ft tall and weighing 143 stone (907kg), the statue stands in a church in the central Mexican state of Zacatecas.

Following a report in the New York Post, it is now garnering a fair bit of attention on social media over its uncanny likeness to 1980s-era Collins, when his band Genesis were at the height of their fame – and when he sported a similar angelic hair tuft.

“Put some drums in front of it & it would be uncanny!” one Twitter user wrote.
