John Lennon Appears In Pint Glass

A Beatles superfan is celebrating his birthday in an interesting way.

Lee Baker, who just turned 51, is celebrating in Liverpool with friends.

The group toured various city landmarks before stopping for a drink on Matthew Street, where the band played early in its career.

After glancing down at his pint glass, Lee saw John Lennon’s face seemingly staring back from the foam.

Lee took a snap of the find and posted it on social media, where it immediately went viral. We know what you’re thinking…that looks more like Lou Reed and we agree, but you need to shut up and agree that it’s John Lennon.

Does this really look like John Lennon? Who else could it be?
