Look, We Can't All Live in a Yellow Submarine. It's Finite.


There comes a point when being special ceases to be special because everything is special. For example, if we all live in a yellow submarine, it ceases to be quirky. It's just the accepted thing that people do. Of course it does make you wonder what kind of post-apocalyptic world the Beatles imagined for us. Why don't we live on land anymore? Why must we live beneath the depths of the sea? Has the Earth's surface become uninhabitable? A war between colorful nuclear nations? Is it too hot? Too cold? Are we living in separate yellow submarines or one large one? If separate, is it possible to visit friends in other submarines? If one submarine, is it really big or are there only a few of us left? Curse you, Paul McCartney, why did you have to be so vague? Whatever the answers may be, the Beatles song "Yellow Submarine" became an animated film two years later, and both are firmly cemented as iconic pieces of pop culture.

Enough of this discussion of post-apocalyptic and possibly overpopulated submarines, because we're giving away a copy on Yellow Submarine on DVD so you can decide for yourself.

Once upon a time… or maybe twice, there was an unearthly paradise called Pepperland, a place where happiness and music reigned supreme. But all that was threatened when the terrible Blue Meanies declared war and sent in their army led by a menacing Flying Glove to destroy all that was good.  Enter John, Paul, George and Ringo to save the day!  Armed with little more than their humour, songs, and of course, their yellow submarine, The Beatles tackle the rough seas ahead in an effort to bring down the evil forces of bluedom.
