A TikTok user shared a photo taken while visiting New York City that—unknown to her until she looked at it later—depicted Paul McCartney on a crosswalk. Shades of Abbey Road.
Mae Archie said:
...I wanted to take a cute photo so I took it on the cross walk but I was facing my mum so I never actually saw Paul until I turned around."
Archie says she "made eye contact" with McCartney and "stood there for a few seconds" during the star-struck moment.
"He could tell I was trying to figure out why he looked so familiar," she adds.
As soon as she realised, The Beatles bassist simply winked at Archie and walked away.
"He knew I knew," she said.
