The Walrus Was Raúl

Possibly because we were drunk, we missed the fact that January 30 was the 40th anniversary of the Beatles' famous final "rooftop concert." Anyway, while you'd think the word for "Beatlemania" would be the same in English and Mexican, in fact the go-to band for Fab Four tributation is Grupo Help, whose many talents do not actually include looking anything like the Beatles. Still, if you ever wondered how the rooftop show would have sounded with a slight Mexican accent and a right-handed bass player, here are the Fab Four and the Cuatro Fabuloso playing "Don't Let Me Down."

[For full effect, start the Beatles first, and when they get to 00:12 seconds, start Grupo Help.]
