    Crazy video. Love it. Used to own a double cd from the beatles. Let my friend borrow. Never got it back and I moved. :~( Always loved them. My favorite song “Free as a Bird”. That song just rocks me out. Jamming to it right now on Youtube along with you LP. HE HE :~)

    That shit is sooooo dope! I had to pass it along.
    Bleh…that reminds me-Midnight sale. Corporate. Lazy managers. Massive Egos.
    It’s like an all-in-one metaphor for life. …and yet not a single one has played Buck Rogers.
    Which is another fucking metaphor for life- I had that shit mastered until my Colecovision ate the cassette tape.
    Kids these days ;C)

    that is really awesome! I don’t play Rock band, but I love, love, love the Beatles… Wearing my Abby Road shirt right now!!

    Random tid-bit: Paul McCartney had a birthday yesterday…

    Wow that’s some good animation…I love around 2:00, it’s really cool
    Nice one Red Baron 🙂 …and his mysterious identity :p

    It’s a great montage of their old videos/art and re-imagined in this art style concept. I dig it. On another note, like what others have said here, so when is Linkin Park gonna have its own bundle? heh Hardware-wise, Guitar Hero has a complete set, then add the dj hero controller with it, and have 2 mics for the dual vocal action. Software-wise I guess it could get pretty crowded on screen, but I think it would be a lot of fun. You could have Chairman Hahn do the intro video too. It’s probably expensive to develop but I would definitely buy the bundle heh.

    Yes! I have been waiting for this! nice piece

    wow just saw you on tmz… hahahaha they know who Linkin Park is
    some bloggers are just clueless!

  12. PankakeMunky on June 18, 2009 at 7:38 pm

    that is one crazy ad just for rockband for the beatles. i wish all advertisements were as great as this video, then they’d be selling a lot of stuff. it’s like, “we have this muffin to sell. let’s make this intricate video to make people speechless and buy it!” companies would be able to sell a lot of stuff and get out of the recession easily lol

  13. Eddie on June 18, 2009 at 2:19 pm

    It’s really cool!!! Very good video Mike!!!

  14. Jaclyn on June 18, 2009 at 12:54 pm

    Awww Mike, soo kooool! If somebody sent me this link, i’d say “WoW!Thats the art Shinoda likes!” ^^

    I’ve remembered when I was about 5 ,in the kindergarten we tried to figure out who the god was and where he lived. My friends told me he’s on the cloud,but no matter how long i was looking at the sky, i couldnt see him. But once i visited my cousin (he’s much older than me) and saw The Beatles LP vinyl on the shelf and reached out my little hands to it. He said i couldnt touch it, I asked who that men were. And he said “They are Gods” And I felt so warm inside and came to believe ^^ But actually I’ve heard The Beatles songs when I was 16. And I love them!

  15. Brykusieq on June 18, 2009 at 11:56 am

    Awsome video… I really like it 🙂

  16. skoparde on June 18, 2009 at 11:56 am

    Hi Mike,
    thank u for making me acquainted with the Beatles. I have to confess I never heard a song by them other than Yesterday (that too after I heard you guys singing it with Jay-Z and Paul McCartney). Now I have begun to hear more songs by them after watching this really good video.
    Anyways, I wanted to ask you something about downloading music. Can ppl (i.e., like me) download songs like My December and No Roads Left since we did not get them when we bought your albums (on CDs and digitally)?
    Also, as an artist/producer/business guy what do you think about file sharing? Does it hurt you as an artist? Does it actually take away jobs in the music industry?

    Please reply,
    Thank you

    Nice…I wish there was a Linkin Park rock band…that’d be so great:D

  18. Strec on June 18, 2009 at 8:29 am

    I dont know about anyone else but with the new DJ hero, I’m hoping they slap that bad boy and guitar hero together to make Guitar Hero Linkin Park. I would never play any other game. And I agree there needs to be more LP songs on the rockband/Guitar Hero series. And Mahalo’s for the video.

  19. abraHam on June 18, 2009 at 8:07 am

    Beautiful animation.. Beatles 4 ever!

    Yeah, that video was the intro for the Microsoft Press Conference on the E3. :] 😀 (

    I love this video. 😀

    @MIHARU Look in the privacy policy, there is one. 🙂 (or watch it here, read the news, there is it 😉 )

  21. _MiHaRu_ on June 18, 2009 at 3:29 am

    wow beautiful video!!I really like it!!
    mm..I’m trying to find the six transformer’s stones on so far I’ve found just 3 of them!!! -.- help?

  22. PrincessbyDawn on June 18, 2009 at 3:15 am

    Pretty cool animation, loved it!! That make me remember “American Pop”, do you know this animation Mike? The story of four generations of a Russian Jewish family of musicians parallels the history of American popular music in the 20th century, they cover many great bands and styles of this time, its awesome!
    Thanks for to share this one, Mike and Red Baron 🙂

  23. zahra on June 18, 2009 at 1:20 am

    Hey Mike =) My comment is here Please take the time to read it, as it is a thank you to you and the rest of LP for my day hanging with you. =) -Jade

  26. mike_n_LP_4ever on June 17, 2009 at 9:26 pm

    Weird; I wuz just listening to Please Mr. Postman 😛 But anyways: I wuz in Blockbuster when I first heard bout the game ! I wuz just chillen on tha counter lookin at this paper that said ‘Pre-Order these games now’ Me and my bro were looking at it and we had our attention on this game calld Red Faction, but then i wuz lookin at the other games and saw Rock Band: The Beatles, and i screamd out loud . 😛 I got all excitd ! I cant wait til it comes out; looks flippen awsome . 🙂 Sexy Paul McCartney 😛


    PS – Mike, if you havent yet, you need to listen to this group calld P.O.S. They’re really good . If you do, make sure you listen to this song calld, Optimist(We Are Not For Them) . 🙂

  27. Maaark on June 17, 2009 at 8:02 pm

    Great animation. Well, it’s Xbox 360, right Mike? Can we expect something better than that? HA! By the way, I’m a big fan of Rock Band and Guitar Hero. I always play What I’ve Done on Guitar Hero 4. Sucks I can’t buy new songs to play, but it’s still cool to play with my friends.

    Is the new Rock Band dedicated to The Beatles? If it is, I don’t think I’d like it… I mean, the band is amazing, but I like to have options when I play this kind of game, you know? I didn’t like the GH dedicated to Aerosmith either, so you see I don’t have any personal problems with The Beatles. HA!

    Take care man, and thanks for sharing the video!

  28. ShadowerLiltani on June 17, 2009 at 7:56 pm

    Beautiful animation. I loved the giant blue elephant most, and the part where they are jumping off the stairs with the umbrellas. I immediately sent this to my mother, since she loves The Beatles so much. By the way, Ringo Starr was my mom’s favorite band member, and at some party years and years and years ago, she actually got to meet him. The Beatles are epic. Wouldn’t it be so cool, too, if you guys got to be epic like that, and somebody took the time to make an animation like this for you?

  29. ThePrincess on June 17, 2009 at 6:50 pm

    No need to argue .. this is incredible !! .. Hei you know what .. i think you have to make a video like this also … imagine this !.. Six amazing men , LP great song plus a little touch of Mike Shinoda’s elegant Art … I bet it will become a great animation video ever !! … well That only my hope 🙂 .. anyway thanks for sharing daddy ! and to Red Baron too of course …

  30. milasouzams on June 17, 2009 at 6:19 pm

    Hello Mike!!
    What’s Up?

    KiSs ♥

  31. Janni_Loves_LP on June 17, 2009 at 5:53 pm

    Amazing animation! :O True art, and totally Beatles worthy! ❤ It made me smile just like their songs do..! They just still do that to people… (Yes, I love the Beatles) I showed my dad this and he got so happy! Haha… Where do you think I got that love from? Thanks for sharing Mike! 😉

  32. Tatty on June 17, 2009 at 4:58 pm

    Not like the BEATLES! =/

  33. lucky_cat on June 17, 2009 at 3:10 pm

    It’s only an ad … I think if all ads were made that loving they would draw my attention more often. Nice find, thanks for posting … And I grew up with their music too because of my father being such a huge Beatles fan … hmmm, now that he is a pensioner and has a lot of time I should play Rock Band with him, lol.

  34. Hybr1d_7h3ory on June 17, 2009 at 2:41 pm

    Not nearly as weird/trippy as “Yellow Submarine”.

    Ever sat through it Mike?

  35. cuz on June 17, 2009 at 2:33 pm

    That looks great. I’ve never seen anything of Rock Band but I like the art very much.

  36. Lori on June 17, 2009 at 2:29 pm

    thats awesome… comes the sun is one of my favourite summer tunes 🙂 it just makes me happee

  37. PinkWater3 on June 17, 2009 at 2:28 pm

    this is not an ad, it’s a piece of art :0

  38. Ranger_000 on June 17, 2009 at 2:21 pm

    When is Linkin Park going to do more with Rock Band? I think we all would like to be able to play more than “One Step Closer”… 😀

  39. ninguem on June 17, 2009 at 2:20 pm

    i don’t liked this, i don’t like beatles

  40. lp_fm_fan on June 17, 2009 at 2:20 pm

    haha, great.

    Btw, I know you’re into this: the new OS 3.0 for the iPhone came out today, did you get it?

    I have it and loveee it, I don’t have that much time to play with it because of school >.<

    Or are you getting the 3G S? IMO it’s not worth it (about $500 for upgrading, definitely not worth it) I’ll wait for the NEXT update in 2010, hopefully with 4G!

  41. victoria on June 17, 2009 at 2:18 pm

    Wow Mike , is a really great animation the strange creatures are amazing. Love the Beattles, I’ve grew up with them, my father was and still being a big fan…and last summer I were in the museum in Liverpool 😛 well mike, take care and have a nice day. Love from Spain!

  42. meteorarocker411 on June 17, 2009 at 2:01 pm

    Help bring attention to the Iranian protests! These people are fighting for their freedoms and they need help from around the world!

    Spread the word! CNN surely won’t, they rather spend their time talking about cheeseburgers in a can.

  43. Curiosa on June 17, 2009 at 1:16 pm

    Wow, the animation is great especially for an ad. I thought the pinguins were cute. 😉 Thanks for sharing, I like this video. 🙂 Have a great day. 🙂

  44. Meeny on June 17, 2009 at 1:14 pm

    lol x3
