Almost five decades after the Beatles walked into history with their iconic Abbey Road cover, police officers in a Kerala town have recreated that famous shot, for a good cause. In an ode to the everlasting charm of the 1969 album cover which shows the four band members on a zebra crossing, four cops from the Kannavam Police Station in Kannur district imitated the photo to promote road safety.
The picture was shared on Twitter by the collector of Kannur, Mir Mohammed Ali, who dubbed them "Kannur's Beatles" and said that the cops had 'come together' with local artists to promote road safety through the initiative.
"Initiative taken by the Station House Officer (SHO) at Kannavam Police Station, collaborating with local artists to promote road safety in a remote part of the district," he wrote while sharing the picture on Thursday.
