Coming Up Video

I have always liked this video and the characters that he plays...Beatle Paul, Buddy Holly. Was he spoofing on John as well? One of the characters is a hippie. As Beatle Paul was he wearing the jacket backwards?

No.

I'll have to watch it again. Never noticed that.

And yes, Coming Up is Paul's best ever video!

I had to watch it again, and to me he is spoofing Yoko more than John or maybe it's a spoof on Joko..combo of both..also what is up with the Amish drummer..and the keyboardist reminds me of a spoof on the keyboardist from the band the Sparks..anybody remember him?..

Actually the long haired hippy guitarist is Paul's take-off of Francis Rossi, lead singer of Status Quo. And that's from the horse's mouth in an issue of Club Sandwich, the official MPL mag where it is outlined who every character was supposed to be. Even the saxophonists were intended to represent specific people. The drummer is Ginger Baker, by the way (crossed with 'Animal' from The Muppets, no doubt)

Heres an interesting one with a John Lennon intro. This is from the Twin Freaks version.
