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.
yeah i hear ya ... and who is that original band anyway? the beetles? are they any good?

The Red Hot Chili Peppers remade that photo as well, but they put their own unique twist on it:

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?
If it's any consolation, Irish Pride, I too had no clue those people were a band. But I hear what you're saying, I'm a fanatic about Zep and would not want them trivialized in any way.

Sometimes it's a thin line between imitation and disrespect.

I've got to take some time later tonight and highlight my favorite gifs that VCU posted. I really appreciate you doing this, Ben, especially with all the political garbage going on right now which I tend to get too wrapped up in (and just everyday stress).

Thanks, kid!

I see only a black box with a white "x" in it. So I had to look it up.

All I can say is that they were sure doing some wishful thinking with those knee-high socks...
