Beatles Flash Mob Photos

Beatles Flash Mob

Last Tuesday, Beatle-lovers got the chance to sign a giant replica of the original contract signed by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr during a type of flash mobbing on Carnaby Street, central London.

While fans signed their names, 'Imagine' was pumped out of speakers from the first floor of a nearby building. Apparently this was all linked to a competition with the prize being the chance to own the original contract (currently insured for £500,000). As you've probably guessed, I didn't win, I wasn't even aware there was a competition till I got home.

The event was a little strange, like a quiet hysteria. I got pretty fed up with a guy who arrived late armed with a big video camera who then pushed right in, leaning on us, bashing us with his camera, basically showing no consideration for the people around them.

All a little ironic as John Lennon sang in the background:

"Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world... "

Yes John, lets imagine that for one moment... now where's my prize?
