John Lennon and Spectacles Man

John Lennon and Spectacles Man

There's a permanent life-size statue of John Lennon chilling out on a park bench in Parque John Lennon in Havana, Cuba. Unfortunately, his iconic glasses were repeatedly stolen. So the Cuban government created Spectacles Man, whose job is to wait for passers-by to place those famous round rims on Lennon's nose. Job creation at its most creative.

I'm glad they put his glasses on, I wouldn't recognise him otherwise
