Celebs on Sandwiches

Finalist in Instagrammer of the Year

About Celebs on Sandwiches

Celebrities, they’re just like us… but on sandwiches. Just like the name suggests, Instagrammer @celebsonsandwiches features the world’s biggest celebrities, like Jay Z, Barack Obama, Michael Phelps, and Ellen DeGeneres, sitting on all different kinds of sandwiches—from tuna melts to pastrami on rye. After going viral this year with features in Esquire, Nylon, and People, mastermind Jeff McCarthy even teamed up with Beck (on a steak sandwich) to announce his new single #beckWOW on the account. Using watercolors to playfully depict these (in)famously delicious images to 110K+ Instagram followers, Jeff offers all of them as prints if you happen to find your fave celebrity atop your ideal lunch.
