So when I got this pitch for a new, tell-all conspiracy movie, Paul McCartney Really is Dead. The Last Testament of George Harrison? I said to myself, "Bob, the internets have spoken. You must take this to the
four millions of people who read The Boomer Brief."
Since I didn't want any of you to have a conspiracy theory about me hiding this valuable information, I read the DVD cover and popped into my unit (hey, I thought this was a family blog!). The conspiracy theory behind Paul McCartney Really is Dead is pretty simple as conspiracies go.
In the summer of 2005 a package from London with no return address was delivered to Hwy 61 Entertainment in California. Inside were a micro-cassette tape recorder and two mini-cassette tapes labeled The Last Testament of George Harrison.
On the tapes, the quiet Beatle describes in graphic detail, Paul McCartney's death (decapitated in an automobile accident) and the cover up that's lasted for the past 41 years. I know what you're thinking internets. A four-decade conspiracy that involves millions of people starting with the Queen of England and going all the way down to RINGO? It almost sounds TOO EASY.
There are two problems with this story:
Combine all of this with a directorial style somewhere between Monty Python and Dateline NBC and you'll have a good idea of what's on the DVD.
But hey, you want revelations? We got your revelations RIGHT HERE:
And then, there's the crazy stuff.
The only question left unanswered was how stupid they expect their audience to be. My theory is that these guys are either seriously gullible, or have their tongues planted firmly in their cheeks - which would explain narrator George's horrendously bad British accent.
The movie covers so many clues to the "death" of Paul McCartney, but crack blogger that I am, I've discovered the one they missed.
If you play Paul McCartney Really is Dead backwards it says: Save Your Money. This Movie Sucks.
