The Beatles: 1000 Years Later

Chris Higgins

How will historians look back at the Beatles in a thousand years? This brief video shows one possible outcome. Here’s a snippet:

Voiceover: “The Beatles rose to prominence when they traveled from their native Linverton to America, to perform at Ed Sullivan’s annual Woodstock festival.” Miller Cumpford (Music Historian): “Americans were shocked. I mean, at this time, the overwhelming style of music was opera. No one had ever heard of any piece of music that was less than three hours long — the Beatles changed all of that.”

This is a brilliant satire of historical reconstruction. Pictured below: Beatles Paul MacKenzie, John Lennon, Scottie Pippen, and Greg Hutchinson. Enjoy:
