The main reason it annoys me is it seems disrespectful to a legendary band. The Beatles are known for that cover...

Second thing is it obviously draws parallels between the two bands and how can you compare them? Is One Direction talented? No question, yes. But in comparison to the Beatles?
i think you are looking too much into it .... i don't think anyone is going to compare one direction and the beatles ... just their publicist getting them to do a remake of an iconic photo (which has been redone plenty of times) but i hear what you're saying ...

I think I am looking too much into it as well...but at the same time I don't. It's weird.

I don't see how you could take a picture of a band, crossing that road, and not EXPECT to be compared to the Beatles. You're a band....you're crossing theroad from their cover and they were a band. So the comparison is common sense.

I have no problem with fans or tourists doing it. It just seems odd.

Now....funny enough, if they had taken the picture for themselves and it wasn't some professional shot for a photoshoot, I'd have no problem with that lol. But the sheer fact that it was for publicity, is just bad taste.
