Default Beatles Shakespeare Skit

I don't know if this has been posted yet but I found this on YouTube and thought I'd share it.

Also, I have one question: were those guys in the crowd heckling the Beatles real or were they just part of the skit? I sensed they were real and I got really upset at those jerks.

I'm pretty sure I'm thinking of the same skit...cause as far as I know there's only one Beatles Shakespeare skit...and I absolutely love it. Makes me laugh every time

The heckling is part of the skit. It's taken from A Midsummer Night's Dream, where a group of bad actors put on a play for the main characters, who mock them during the performance.

Thanks SF4-EVER, I wasn't sure if those boys were in it or not. Although some girls get pretty upset with these guys; one of them even pulls this kids' hair really hard.

I thought those guys might be from one of the groups that appeared on that show?

Yay it worked this time!

LMFAO...that was priceless....purely priceless....

John was hillarious,

Ringo's rawr was so cute!

And I gotta love Paul's "I die....die.....die....die..." which is part of the play. and his "later George!"

And George was funny too!


I'm quite familiar with Pyramus and Thisbe, we studied it in class, so it's a real treat to see the beatle version! In case anyone is wondering, this skit is intentionally cheesy too....because they are supposed to be putting on a bad play, hence the audience heckling them.

Why wasn't this put on anthology?

I do think John was the best pick to play the female role. So funny. Thanks for the link, I've been dying to see this again.

Thank you!! I've been wondering for ages whether those guys were supposed to be there or not!
