John Lennon is certainly iconic in the music world, and that impact is truly worldwide, as evidenced by a park in Havana, Cuba called John Lennon Park.

Since the statue was unveiled 11 years ago, there has only been one problem-John's glasses keep getting stolen.  So, what did the Cuban government do? They hired a "spectacles man" whose job it is to place spectacles on the statue, when anyone comes by to see the art work.  Check it out.
