Both the album and its cover image are iconic, so the crosswalk has been attracting thousands of tourists. Due to the current lockdown, there are almost no people in the streets, so the famous zebra crossing is finally getting a fresh coat of paint.

This is one I’ll definitely be filing under the “Why didn’t I think of that?!” category…A U.K. based photographer and professional image retoucher by the name of Barry Craig, had the ingenious idea to attach a plastic Superman toy to his Phantom 3 drone and take it for a fly-about over London’s Victoria Park.
