Gigantic Baby Jesus Looks like Phil Collins (or Nicholas Cage?)

Phil Collins, with his band Genesis, once performed a song called “Jesus He Knows Me.” He may have been onto something.

A sculpture of baby Jesus erected inside a Mexican church apparently looks a lot like the now-68-year-old British musician.

With its tufts of brown hair and similar facial features, the 20-foot-tall statue has garnered international attention for its “uncanny” resemblance to Collins, although many others on social media have argued that the 2,000-pound creation looks more like American actor Nicolas Cage.




“I don’t know if something’s in the air tonight, but this Baby Jesus looks a lot like Phil Collins,” wrote one user.

“Church in Mexico builds huge baby Jesus statue — that looks like Brit singer Phil Collins. Uncanny,” wrote another.

“Nicolas Cage or Baby Jesus,” pondered one of many users drawing parallels between the two.

You *can't* unsee it!!

2. I'm sure it's authentic..

Just like the millions of pictures of the adult Jesus.

6. You know what's really funny


For a couple of years I volunteered for that job at the local Catholic church carnival, and I'm not even Catholic.
