Remember when Jake "died" last week?
In November of 1966, Paul McCartney died in a car crash and the other Beatles covered up his death and replaced him with a look-alike. But they felt guilty about their deception, so they placed increasingly elaborate clues in songs and on album covers to alert the public to the truth.
The first clue? On their first album after his death (Sgt. Pepper), the Beatles all had mustaches. This was a diversionary tactic so no one would notice that "Paul" was a replacement.
Friends all growing facial hair? Hmmm...sounds familiar...
The Beatles were also big on color symbolism. "Paul" was holding a black instrument on the cover of Sgt. Pepper, black being the traditional color of mourning in the West. He was also wearing black on the cover of Abbey Road. John, meanwhile, wore white, the traditional color of mourning in the East.
And now "Jake" is spotted surrounded by yellow.
Yellow? YELLOW?! It's only the EGYPTIAN COLOR OF MOURNING.
Lastly, "Paul" hadn't been photographed for a very long time while he was busy being replaced and all. And now we get these, only the second set of pictures of Jake we've seen since the end of June.
Suspicious? VERY. Next thing we know we'll be playing "Jake's" interviews backwards and hearing all sorts of things...
More pics from yesterday HERE!
