Football stars, they’re just like us — they get bored during coronavirus lockdown, too.

Alexander Kerzhakov, a former striker for Zenit St. Petersburg and the top-scoring player in the history of Russian football, has used his time in quarantine to re-create some of his favorite iconic album covers.

Joined by his family members, he's re-created famous covers from Queen, Oasis and The Beatles so far, with more likely to come as quarantine drags on.

Here’s a look at the quarantine creations:

Thanks to Oasis, you, too, can feel like a rockstar by sitting around in your apartment.
