Isn't a bit stupid to agree to selling something for an advert for any other reason?
I mean just the notion that Sean and Yoko feel that not enough people know about John Lennon. JOHN LENNON. What the fuck have they been smoking recently?
and Yoko is just letting John posthumously spread the word of the world revolution.
I wrote the above before reading the article. That he thinks this is "keeping John Lennon in the public consciousness" is more stupid than what I wrote. Was the world in danger of forgetting John Lennon? I know I'd forgotten meerkats until recently.
More than that, the idea that people who are ignorant of The Beatles (which to be fair, is probably an ever-increasing demographic) will remember John Lennon as "that bloke off the citroen advert" being a good thing for anything except possibly Yoko and Sean's bank balances is just nonsense.

it's a clip of John Lennon, saying (thanks Google):
"Once a thing's been done it's been done, so while this nostalgia -- I mean for the '60s and '70s, you know, looking backwards for inspiration, copying the past -- how's that rock 'n' roll?" Lennon says. "Do something of your own. Start something new, you know? Live your lives now. Know what I mean?"
Silly. I'm not bothered about the purity of the beatles legacy or whatever anyway (and if I was Paul on X Factor would've broken that camel's back), but to justify this on any basis other than cash is pretty silly.
so i kinda believe him
he was on BBC breakfast news hawking it, and when asked if he was going to make more albums with his lute he replied that lute albums "don't pay the bills". WHAT BILLS, YOU MASSIVE PRICK.
