Church Goes Viral For Baby Jesus Statue That Looks Oddly Similar To Phil Collins

The Statue Is The World’s Largest Baby Jesus Statue, But All Social Media Can Focus On Is Its Look

November 21, 2019

A church in Mexico has unveiled the largest baby Jesus statue in history, but all anyone wants to talk about is the rock star it looks eerily similar to. With big blue eyes, a wispy curl of hair on the forehead and a mullet-esque do in the back, many people have been comparing the statue to an 80’s era Phil Collins. While the former Genesis singer and Jesus don’t seem to have much in common, they definitely look the same here.

The 2,000 pound, 22 feet tall statue of baby Jesus is located at the La EpifanÍa del Señor church in the central Mexican state of Zacatecas. While the church is happy to have the largest baby Jesus statue in the world, the church claims the size was an accident. “There is a space of between 26 feet between the ceiling and the floor and I ordered a statue measuring 21 feet, but I never intended to make it the biggest baby Jesus statue in the world,” said Priest Humberto Rodriguez.

Many on social media ignored the impressive size of the statue, and instead chose to focus on its similarity to Phil Collins. Collins is yet to comment on the statue, but one could only assume he must be flattered in some way. The church has submitted the statue to the Guinness Book of World Records, so Collins may soon be adding another accolade to his resume.
