In a strange twist of fate, a woman was unknowingly photobombed by Paul McCartney after visiting a The Beatles exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Mae Archie took to TikTok to share the surreal moment that she discovered that Sir Paul McCartney had photobombed the background of a photo of her taken in New York.
If the events weren’t surreal enough, the photo was taken off Mae at a pedestrian crossing, recalling the iconic imagery of the Abbey Road cover.
“Taking pictures in NYC then realising when I get home THE Paul McCartney photobombed me,” she wrote.
“I just left the MET to see the Play It Loud exhibit and was legit looking at the Beatles set and everything,” she continued.
Mae went on to detail that she briefly caught McCartney’s eye after taking the photo, and attempted “figure out where she knew him from” – claiming that he “winked” at her.

In other news, it was recently announced that Paul’s daughter Mary McCartney is set to direct a documentary on the iconic Abbey Road Studios.
If These Walls Could Sing, will offer an in-depth behind-the-scenes look at the recording studio and its overview of its history as part of Abbey Road’s 90th-anniversary celebration this November.
“Some of my earliest memories as a young child come from time spent at Abbey Road,” Mary McCartney said in a statement. “I’ve long wanted to tell the story of this historic place, and I couldn’t be collaborating with a better team than John and Mercury Studios to make this creative ambition a reality.”
Isabel Garvey, managing director of Abbey Road Studios, added: “’If these walls could sing.’ I have lost count of how many times I’ve heard that said at Abbey Road Studios over the years. I can’t wait for some of these stories to finally come to life in what will become a timeless documentary.”
