Watch it before it's taken down: The Beatles Rock Band 'Birthday' video

Posted on Fri, Aug 7, 2009 at 11:55 AM


Sure, maybe it's the fifth worst song on the White Album, but it's being played by digitized Beatles this time. This video is the first in-game footage of a full song, and it was originally released as a treat for the people who preordered the game. Watch it fast, because Viacom keeps knocking it off of YouTube for copyright infringement. There's no note highways unfortunately, but we do get to see the CGI Beatles in the CGI studio, and there's even trippy fireworks animations and stuff to recreate the experience of having the world's best drug connection during the late 1960s. The Beatles: Rock Band is scheduled for a September 9 release, and I can already guarantee this will be bigger than Jesus: The Video Game.
