People think this pothole looks like Paul McCartney

Fixing A Hole has never been more apt...

A pothole has become an unlikely sensation online after its questionable resemblance to Paul McCartney was first noticed.

The hazardous crack in the road surface was first spotted by the Lancashire Evening Post, who were keen to point out the similarities in appearance to the Beatles icon.

Upon first inspection, the gravel surrounding the hole looks extremely similar to Macca’s famous mop-top hairstyle, and there’s even individual stones that are making up his eyebrows, eyes, nose and mouth.

Responding to the unusual photo, one user joked: “Why is no-one Fixing A Hole?”

Another quipped: “Is this one of the 4000 holes in Blackburn Lancashire?”

Although it’s only a resemblance, the pothole might be the closest that some fans get to Macca in 2019 – after it was seemingly confirmed that he won’t be headlining Glastonbury after all.

Despite strong speculation linking him to a Saturday night headline slot, McCartney has now announced US dates at the same time as the iconic festival. Sir Paul will instead be performing at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix on June 26, before heading to Las Vegas’ T Mobile Arena on June 29.

Earlier this month, McCartney released his new single ‘Get Enough’.

The latest release sees him dabbling with autotune for the first time ever – along with production from OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder.
