Four lads in jeans have been enshrined with statue in Birmingham

The guys made famous by the 'Four Lads in Jeans' meme are being honoured with a statue.

For those living under a rock, the Brummy cultural icons broke the internet with their killer hairdos, poses, and jeans, back in 2019 after posing outside of an All Bar One.

Since then, they've taken the banter on the chin, recorded a sea-shanty, and are now going to be immortalised for future generations to enjoy.

A 'sneak peek' of the new statue was shared by the artist @TatVision and features Kevin Rooney, Alex Lacey, Jamie Phillips, and Connor Humpage in all their jean-wearing glory.

The post read: "Nearly finished the Four lads in Jeans statue. Come and see it unveiled on Saturday outside @Allbarone Grand Central!"

Yep, that's right, the statue will, fightingly, be placed at the scene of the meme and we're already planning our night out for the unveiling this Saturday 27 August.

So, who created this incredible work of art? Tat Vision, an artist that specialises in Papier-mâché.


And their newest creation is no exception because the artist crafted the statue out of women's mannequins, Papier-mâché, and PVA glue.

Sounds like our final GCSE art project.


Speaking to Birmingham Live about the inspiration behind the statue, Tat Vision said: "The idea was inspired by the 'Ronaldo statue' and 'Boulton, Watt and Murdoch' near the library.

"I shipped the idea of doing it for the Commonwealth Games, but it was too late. Fortunately, I was put in contact with Birmingham Big Weekender and had the go-ahead from them. The statue will be there all weekend as part of an event."

Because nothing screams Commonwealth Games like four lads on a night out.



Still, you've got to respect the monumental effort from Tat Vision and the sneak peek of the statue looks pretty bang on.

But, it was no easy feat, with the artist saying: "It took me a few weeks, on-and-off, to make. I used four women's mannequins, which I covered in tight-fitting ladies' jeans and tops. The heads are made from papier-mâché, and all of it was painted to have a nice, shiny bronze effect.

"I'm happy with the way it looks, just the heads to attach. Hope they don't fall off!"

Here's hoping the lads keep their heads for what looks set to be the biggest Saturday of the summer.
