Default Was I the only one who got REALLY "misty" when first seeing this ?

... to boot, I just chanced upon it during a commercial break (on t.v.)... heck, I didn't even know they had t.v. adds out for this !

Wow! What a great Paul look-alike, can't say the same for George though.
We reckoned we could make it because there were four of us. None of us would've made it alone, because Paul wasn't quite strong enough, I didn't have enough girl-appeal, George was too quiet, and Ringo was the drummer. But we thought that everyone would be able to dig at least one of us, and that's how it turned out.

I actually really like that commercial haha.
"Once upon a time there were three
little boys called john, george
and paul,
by named christened. They decided to get
together because they were the getting-together
type. When they were together they wondered
what for after all, what for? So all of a sudden
they all grew guitars and formed a noise."

Thumbs up

Yeah, a great ad that made me smile when I first saw it. Then I got a bit nostalgic and sad...

John kind of looks a bit weird, I think, but the other three look great!

If that got you misty, play the game. I ran through the entire story mode today with my friend and it was very moving in so many ways.

Cool game, love the graphics and additional video footage. I already beat it on expert guitar, but there is still plenty more to do. The best Rock Band game yet!

There is a longer version than the YouTube one, but my word for it is messy, too many people.
