    Link: Tourists Love Abbey Road - Thousands of tourists and Beatles fans go to Abbey Road and recreate the Abby Road cover art. Here`s just one day of it.

    Lawd, I`d hate to have to go that way for work every day. They`d all be tourist pancakes if I got to `em.

    Meh the beatles were gash. I mean yeah they were doing something new which led to great things but in my opinion they weren`t great things themselves. As songs go they`re all pretty bland.

    There is something so uplifting in that video...

    I walked over to Abbey Road to check it out when living in Maida Vale. Any street coming into abbey road at the junction has the side streets sign barely tacked onto the brick wall whereas just around the corner the abbey road street sign is no longer mounted likewise on the brick walls as on the abbey road album cover, but is now freestanding wrapped around by metal bar which is then sunk into the pavement. It`d take a blowtorch to pinch the street sign as of probably not a month or two since the albums release in 1970.

    I fully plan on doing that when/if (hopefully when) I visit England. And I`m going to do it barefoot too!

    Nothing wrong with being a stupid tourist I always say.

    The ones who do it when there`s no camera are just weird.

    The ones doing it from the wrong direction... boo!

    As for everyone else, it`s not a weird pose on the cover of the album, they`re just walking.

    Strangely enough, I was watching a film the other day where they did this, and it got me thinking into how many people do that a day! I`m glad I`ve seen some proof that my thoughts aren`t totally stupid.

    As a driver in London and Surrey, I can imagine that anyone who has to drive down that road even once would get annoyed with it. Or maybe that just me and my road rage. I wouldn`t be surprised if there were lots of near accidents though with cars just driving over the crossing, knowing what they wanna do when get start going over the zebra crossing.

    *Laughs* Those poor drivers having to wait for the retards to get the hell across the road. xP

    And I don`t mean `retards` in a bad way, it`s just - what if you were a regular driver on that road? You`d see all these tourists trying to make that pose over and over again. You`d get kinda tired of it, don`t you think?

    Probably to make sure that youtube/music company (WGM?) wouldn`t mute their video if they used a song by such a popular/well-known band.

    half of them are walking like super stiff. in the album cover all the beatles look pretty natural to me, not swingging their arms up and down like idiots and i`m pretty sure they bent their knees.

    "they should have had a song from the album playing in the vid."

    Agreed.

    They aren`t playing a Beatles song because it is a music video for a song called Garble Arch by Blame Ringo hence the title of the video.
