Singer Phil Collins, the man behind hits from as far back as the 1981 track “In the Air Tonight,” is being celebrated with a statue at a church in Mexico. The only issue is that the subject of said statue is supposed to be baby Jesus.
Local priest Humberto Rodriguez says: “There is a space of between 26ftt between the ceiling and the floor and I ordered a statue measuring 21ft, but I never intended to make it the biggest baby Jesus statue in the world.”

As for the likeness to the former Genesis star, Rodriguez wouldn’t say.
Apparently, the previous record holder for the biggest baby Jesus statue was 16ft tall and weighed 661lbs.
It’s reported that Rodriguez has contacted the Guinness World Records to claim the title.
