New York City had King Kong. Tokyo had Godzilla. And Moscow has…Ed Sheeran? The 28-year-old singer-songwriter has dominated the charts. Now he has taken over Russia’s capital city in the form of a new 16-foot statue.

The over-sized Ed Sheeran sculpture appeared suddenly in Moscow’s Gorky Park on Tuesday (7/16). It’s believed to be part of a promotional collaboration between Yandex Music and Warner Music Russia. Ed is playing his first concert over there this Friday (7/19). The graffiti-covered, short-panted Sheeran is definitely hard to miss.
