"Hey! That's a Beatle!" - Paul McCartney captures in accidental photobomb

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.
