Abbey Road is party central in new spot for 'Beatles: Rock Band'

Posted on Mon Aug 31 2009

The fall Beatles blitz is under way. In addition to multiple retail tie-ins for remastered Beatles CDs, the TV campaign for the long-awaited Beatles: Rock Band video game from Electronic Arts is out, and they seem to have pulled off a Forrest Gump-like special effect. The spot uses footage (one presumes) from the Abbey Road photo shoot and skillfully weaves in body doubles to show the Fab Four interacting with the masses. Don't worry, Beatle people. Only 10 more days until the game is available in stores. As the Beatles one sang, it won't be long, yeah, yeah.
