A close inspection of the audience at the band’s Ed Sullivan Show performance reveals figures that bear a strong resemblance to the Beatles as older men.
During the band’s performance of “A Hard Day’s Night,” a silhouette of Mary Poppins can be seen briefly on Ringo’s drum kit; the Disney movie opened the same month as the Beatles’ film.
If you press the B button just before “Ticket to Ride,” the band will admit that they were high for seventy percent of the filming of Help!
If you hold down the left trigger and then depress the right trigger twice quickly during “Taxman,” the band will squabble over songwriting credits. George will walk out of the room dejected.
During or just after “Eleanor Rigby,” if you press X for five seconds, let it go, and then move the left stick to the left while pressing Y, John Lennon will retract his apology to the Vatican for implying that the Beatles were bigger than Christianity.
If you hold down B and wish very hard, it will be like the movie of Magical Mystery Tour never happened.
The right trigger permits you to zoom in on a Sgt. Pepper’s LP leaning on the back wall of the studio and inspect the album’s legendary cover. Some additional figures have been added to the famed collage, including Mike Tyson, Michael Jackson, Lily Allen, Sarah Palin, and “Weird Al” Yankovic.
If you move the right stick very slowly to the twelve o’clock position during “When I’m Sixty-Four,” George Martin will take credit for everything.
If you press A three times in rapid succession while moving the left stick from left to right, the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi will disillusion all four Beatles.
If you hold down A and B buttons at the same time during any of the White Album tracks, Paul will yell at Ringo to go home for the day and then overdub his drum parts when he leaves.
Look hard at the windows beneath the band at the beginning of the rooftop concert. Inside of one of them, there is an old woman watching The Rockford Files, a TV show that didn’t start until 1974. Weird.
If you depress X and Y while pulling the right stick downward, Yoko Ono will meet John and be unfairly blamed for the breakup of the band.
