ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Above: A recently-discovered alternative version of the song "I Will" from The Beatles' White Album (1968), originally deemed too controversial to be included on the release. This rare track was remastered by audio engineer Peter Serafinowicz.
Paul McCartney 'I'll Kill'
Ah, I see now. Funny or Die.
Yes, from “The White Album.” You know: Charles Manson, Sharon Tate. I’m sure the video’s authors are too young too remember. Never the less: too soon.
Are you being serious?
I’m adrift in a sea of irony, I think, and it’s hard to tell what’s intentional and what’s not.
^Laughs at inappropriate times.
It’s not “too soon” you just don’t like dark humor. Some people do, some people don’t. It probably has to do with whether or not they use laughter as a coping mechanism.
Peter Serafinwitzalkfd is just brilliant most of the time.
A beautiful start to a too-early morning. By the way, check out Serafinowicz’s brilliant “Look Around You,” the bright future as seen from 1980.
“F’king Media Studies!!!”
Robbing Paul to pay Peter??
Serafinowicz is a most prolific Tweeter too, with lots of good one-liners!
That was fantastic, and before I saw the name Peter Serafinowicz, I was inclined to believe it. After all the Beatles did put out “Run For Your Life”.

ummm. I can’t figure out where you and in fact, goodfight are coming from. It seems they are out to ‘expose’ the Beatles.
Mission accomplished. I now rate the Beatles a little bit higher having learned that they bothered with all the satanic stuff.
I mean; you gotta be reeeaaalllly convinced of your convictions before walking off down that path.
How cool is that? The Beatles were satanic.
@Wild Olive – The Beatles? Satanic (Troll much?)? Please.
As for the video… subtly twisted. I like it.
Hey! Could somebody please let the bouncer know when a crazy person wanders in?
If anyone’s looking for the crazy part in this video, it starts about halfway through, after Sgt. Pepper.
Sad that some folks here seem to be taking this entirely too seriously.
Great expressions. Mugs with the best of them and he’s got the head-bobbing down. Should have been an out-take from the Rutles.
GH! LM S RGHT
Hrm. Gotta say guys, this seems to have ‘spoof’ written all over it.

Over the past two days, Internet advocates in Mexico have been voicing outrage over a proposed 3% telecommunications tax in a number of ways -- including flooding Twitter with the hashtag "internetnecesario," shorthand for "the internet is a basic neccesity." Here's one English language blog post from one blogger who believes the tax would be terrible news, and here is another in Spanish. Background on the politics in this Reuters item. (image via trendsmap.com, thanks @wordwardness).
Just how would one construct a Glenn Beck Halloween Mask using little more than an adult diaper and a printout from these very internets?
Do you smell a terrorist? Did you know that "terrorism is a crime?" This iWatch PSA stars a cast of pretend-earnest actors encouraging you to rat out your neighbor, "if you see, hear, or smell something suspicious." Don't hesitate -- "let law enforcement determine if it's a threat, (says this fellow, who plays a sex-crazed Mr Pringles when he's not playing a fear-mongering alarmist)" and "let the experts decide." Be sure to report on anyone drawing important buildings, a favorite tactic of terrorists with an artistic bent!
