Fictitious Beatles tribute band, Hey Dude, in SNL skit

Did anyone see SNL?! They had a skit set at a pub in London and there is a Beatles tribute band called Hey Dude! They were performing "You Got to Hide Your Love Away." The Ringo was dressed in a SPLHCB uniform. Then George was from 1965, I think, though, it looked like John. There was Abbey Road John in his white suit. And it looked like Abbey Road George dressed like Paul in his suit from from Apple rooftop concert playing a Hofner. What a mismatch of Beatle eras and outfits! LOL

This is how it looked to me: Aside from being dressed as Beatles from different eras, you have two John Lennons: 1964/65 John (moptop) and 1969 Abbey Road John. Paul and George have been fused as one Beatle! In appearance, it is Abbey Road George with the hair and beard. But, he is dressed in Paul's suit from early 1969  from the Apple rooftop concert and playing Paul's Hofner bass. I think the writers were having a little fun by mixing things up on their appearance.  If you do the math, you have 1 ringo, 1 George/ Paul fusion (or half-George, half-Paul), and 2 Johns! LOL
