Love, love, love.

I love The Beatles. I could sit in the pub with my mate Jeff talking about The Beatles all night, and frequently have.  And even if you don't play computer games, and you've an ounce of Beatles love in your soul, you'll still love this.



The design on the trailer looks like it's by Gorillaz collaborator Robert Valley, those long legs are a bit of a giveaway. He also did the great Wolfmother-utilising ad for ROCK BAND's big rival franchise GUITAR HERO, funnily enough.

Thanks for that, Mark... can't beat a bit of mind-bending psychedelia to start the day!

Funnily enough, I saw that gigantic Ganesh heading for the white cliffs of Dover, and thought of you.

That's definitely Valley, isn't it?

This is the best videogame intro sequence I have EVER seen.

That was a morning treat, I suspect it's going to be an afternoon and evening treat too.

Fantastic.
It's reminscent of the 'Free as a Bird' video with all the references to songs and films. Did you spot them all?
Especially liked the Alan Aldrige eyes.

I sat in the Northland Arms one Sunday night and gave the regulars a DVD-style commentary about all the references in the Free As A Bird video, when it came on TV. I think I lost most of them around the time I named Macca's dog.
