The next Johnny Cash or Taylor Swift might just be a resident of the Sydmar Lodge Care Home in Edgware, England. After being in lockdown for more than 120 days, the seniors at the assisted living facility decided to recreate some of the most iconic album covers, transforming themselves into Blink 182, Adele, and Bruce Springsteen in some amusing parodies.

The facility’s activities coordinator, Robert Specker, helmed the project—which includes Elvis Presley’s self-titled debut, Madonna’s True Blue, and David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane— and shared the full series in a now-viral post. You also might enjoy this similarly creative endeavor that inspired people to recreate famous artworks. (via Kottke)
