'The Beatles: Rock Band': Most amazing animated commercial ever?

I don't care what you think about the Beatles, or what you think of Rock Band, or if you believe that videogames melt your brain in a deliciously Coldstone Creamery kind of way (which they totally do, and is actually very tasty) — this promo spot for The Beatles: Rock Band is simply one of the best animated short films I've seen in a long, long time. It oughta get nominated for something, it's so damned spiffy. Judge for yourself:

See? I wouldn't steer you wrong, would I? I wonder what Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin spots might look like….Does this entice you to pick up The Beatles: Rock Band when it drops this September?

    I love Rock Band, I love the Beatles. And this commerical just convinced me to go Pre order this. (I was just going to wait and risk buying it in stores in like October). How fantastic will it be to sing and ‘play guiatar’ and drums to all their fantastic songs.

    Being a member of a band that does Beatles songs (along with lots of other ’60s and ’70s stuff), this really isn’t high on my priority list seeing as I can do it for real.
    HOWEVER, I am very impressed at the accuracy of the locales, clothing, instruments, appearances, etc. – especially the Cavern, Budokan, the rooftop… mind-blowing! This is gonna be one heck of a game. Will it convince me to buy a gaming system just so I can spend more money on the game? Probably not. I’m setting aside my dough for the remastered CDs. But perhaps once my rich uncle gets out of the poorhouse…

    Not a video game player, but OMG that is an amazing video.

    I wasn’t all that convinced when I first heard about the game, but now find myself suffering full-blown Beatle-mania. This looks fantastic.

    That gave me goosebumps. I absolutely love the Beatles. What I love about them is that they reach all generations. I’m 22 and own every album. This just makes me smile. Love it.

    if you like this, you should all go see LOVE by Cirque du Soleil if you’re headed to Las Vegas….that had a similar effect on me…suddenly, I’m a Beatles fan

  • Rose

    Love this ad, but I’ll probably finally take those bass lessons instead of buying the game.

  • Brian

    I knew it would turn pretty good once I heard all the surviving members and next of kin of the others all had a hand in its development and authenticity. And yeah, it looks really, really well done.

  • Charles

    No interest in playing the video game, but I do love the Beatles and that commercial sent a chill of delight up my spine. Wow, two and a half minutes of bliss. Great way to start my day.

    Whoever animated that is a master!

  • Delon

    Looks and sounds awesome! Totally makes you wanna play, but not Rockband the game, rather another game that would have all those trippy images. If only i could play that game.

  • Joslyn

    An amazing spot, but it really needed the final chord from “A Day in the Life” at the end.

  • Kate

    Really amazing, thanks so much for sharing it with us. Very nostalgic.
