Aaaaiiiiieeeee!!!


#3

That's the first ending to rival that of The Lord of the Rings trilogy... didn't think it could be done.


#4

Roon!!


#5

Ye gods. The gold suit. THE ELEPHANTS!

(I would also add: damn she is hot)


#6

Nothing like authentic 70's disco psychedelica. The Beatles medley just pushed it into orbit. I'm convinced that this is what we will all see when we die.

Also, LOL elephant trunks. Much too fun.

Choreography by the Ministry of Silly Walks.


#8

And yet it doesn't seem nearly as delightfully over-the-top as my favorite Beatles tune cover:


#9

"Less is more. . . " said absolutely no one involved in that production.


#10

Yes, the elephants - but the rotating Maharishis!


#11

Less a medley than a bunch of songs colliding with each other. With production "values."


#12

Said no-one in Italian TV ever.


#13

Of course the Beatles were never anything more than a second rate Ruttles cover band.


#14

Is that Dave Vader?


#15

That's Jeff Vader, that is. Wait, I think he's Mr. Stephens, head of catering. He loves the penne al arrabiata. With peas.


#16

"Delightful" Beatles medley....


Great moments in gibberish
#17

The two things I remember Carrà for are Tuca Tuca and for her dancing in this remarkable thing.


#18

That was one of the best showcases of Italian excess since Caligula.


#19

I like the afterbirth used as makeup.

Of course, I can only see the still since YouTube is out to lunch.

Phony Beatlemania has bitten the dust.
London calling,
Yes, I was there, too
An' you know what they said?
Well, some of it was true!
