Yes, that was from The Rutles' second film which was in color.  Their first was in black and white.

Here's Ron Nasty performing Ouch! a few months ago...

That was a clue at 1:12 in the 1967 video.

Playing it backwards reveals the hidden message...

I can honestly say that I've never heard The Rutles on the radio. But I really hope to some day.  ;D

I bought The Rutles anthology on bluray as I've never seen the full All You Need is Cash.

Loved it of course although I wonder if anyone who wasn't a pretty knowledgeable Beatle fan would find it that funny.

I was disappointed also that the second Can't Buy Me Lunch feature is just an edited, shorter  version of the original movie. I'm not sure why they bothered putting it on a second disc and publicising it on the cover  as if it were something different to the original.

I was 13 when I saw the film of The Rutles performing "I Must Be in Love" on Saturday Night Live. I got a big kick out of the running gag with Loren Michaels and the $300 but I thought the film was dumb and even blasphemous. It wasn't too common to see old footage of the real thing in those days and that was all I cared about. But when I first came here six years ago and and commenced with my Beatles education I was re-introduced to The Rutles, encouraged to watch "All You Need is Cash" and found it hilarious. A casual fan might find it funny but to really understand why it's brilliant you have to be schooled.  :)

It is great fun. And some of the songs (the ones that aren't straight rip offs) are clever in their own right. I found Jagger a bit hit and miss though. He sometimes played it straight quite well but other times couldn't stop smiling at the joke.

The experimental Feet film had me in stitches

I had the soundtrack on my iPod for a while. I never knew, but just read, that poor Neil Innes was sued by Northern Songs for copyright infringement. Warner Brothers wouldn't back him up and he lost a lot of the money he made from the film. It sadly proved the validity of the film's title, I guess.

I heard that John Lennon loved it but thought that "Get Up and Go" was a bit too close to the original (the If I Fell parody is also pretty much a note for note take-off) and that they added Lennon and McCartney to the credits. But most of the others I didn't think were direct lifts. They more captured the mood and style very well.  I suppose the music companies want to use all those lawyers for something.

Is that about a cane toad you've run over and is stuck on your tyre?
