Man Furious After Passport Photo Makes Him Look Like Hitler

It's very rare that anyone will ever be completely satisfied with their passport photo.

You're stuck with that picture for a long time, so even if you're happy with it at first, chances are you'll eventually grow to hate it.

I, for example, had my photo taken when I was in a young, teenage hippy phase, with terrible hair and happened to look exactly like Jake Bugg.


That, however, is nowhere near as bad as Stuart Boyd's passport photo.

Stuart was left looking like Hitler, after a small print made it look like he had a moustache like the former leader of the Nazi party - despite being clean shaven.

Speaking to M.E.N, Stuart said: "I was really angry when I saw it. I was distraught, really. I just thought, 'Oh, for God's sake, I have to have this for 10 years and they can't even get it right'."

"I wasn't really sure of the process of how to change it so I posted a picture of it on Facebook."

After very little help on Facebook, and instead a few puns such as 'Heil-arious' and 'al-Reich', Stuart decided to ring his sister, Angie.

"She just started laughing, she said to me, 'oh come on, you've got to see the funny side,' then I did see the funny side."


"My friends and colleagues think it's hilarious," he told MEN.

Stuart eventually spoke to Passport Office, explaining his predicament, and they said they'd issue him a new passport.


"To be fair the woman was very pleasant and helpful. She said they obviously didn't intentionally make me look like Adolf Hitler and told me to send it back so they can issue a new one," he told M.E.N.

Thank god. Imagine trying to get into another country with that picture.
