The Rutles!

I just saw the Beatles tribute mockumentary "The Rutles: All You Need is Cash" and "Can't Buy Me Lunch" and it was hilarious! The way Eric Idle spoofs the Beatles Anthology (22 years before the latter was published) and how he prepares the way for Spinal Tap is just fabulous.

And it's great to see George Harrison as an interviewer at Rutles Corp. Anybody who knows about the Beatles will love the way Beatlemania and the Apple debacle are put into a humorous context. Don't forget to listen to the songs, especially those on The Rutles Archeology :)
