OMG, like Faul is dead!

Okay so today I had the blues and the blahs and I turned to Netflixs for succor and I watched "Paul Really Is Dead: The Last Testament of George Harrison" because I didn't want to have to ever think again.

If you've seen this "documentary" then you know who Faul is. Faul is Fake Paul aka William Campbell.

Despite having spent the remainder of the day wishing for a Foomerang I did have time to wonder if you remembered the original "Paul is dead" bit.

I was only six when Paul "died" but I still remember all the P.I.D. stuff that floated around for years.

How does a rumor become so ingrained and persistent that nearly 50 years later they're making a documentary about it and that there are several websites insisting that it is absolutely true?

Any theories, conspiracy or otherwise, appreciated!

@boomerang,
I might be able to tell you if I print out your post and hold it up to a mirror to read the hidden message that is written when viewed backwards.

Yes, I was one of those who wore out my record trying to hear the hidden message from Paul that everyone said was there when it was played backwards.

It was a rumor that turned into a great marketing ploy.

No idea who or what this is about.
Interesting how just because you aware of something you assume the majority of people are too.
Kinda like commonsense.

Thousand times ditto farmerman. Not the Phillies pitcher thing but the first section sentiment.

I was alerted early on it was a hoax. But, my friend, whatsisname, played the record backwards and tried to solve the mystery.

@Butrflynet,
Years ago I took a sacred oath that I would only say this on the rare occasion that it was actually true. You, my friend, have earned one of the few I've ever given out.

@dadpad,
Sorry dadpad.

Until today I could not have told you who Faul was either.

It seems that in 1966 Paul McCartney (of the Beatles fame) was killed in a car crash -- decapitated, no less. The remainder of the Beatles were called to the crash site where the British secret service types stole them away to hatch a plot to create a double for Paul to keep the young women of the world from committing suicide in their despair over Paul's death.

The double was a man named William Campbell, who gave up his life in service to the Beatles.

The Beatles in turn left a mazillion, billion clues trying to let people know that the "real Paul" was dead and that there was now a "Fake Paul" aka Faul.

It was the craziest damn "documentary" that I've ever seen.

But kind of fun.

I paid attention to the Beatles because my mom used to threaten to run off and marry Ringo if we didn't behave ourselves. We'd cry and beg -- like having a Beatle as a step dad would be the worst thing in the entire world.

I did meet George Harrison for a shiny and golden 120 seconds back in the 70s.

I didn't ask him about Faul but it was still special.

Do you have any idea how many people would have had to be involved and keep their mouth shut to carry this off? The other Beatles, James McCartney, Mike McCartney, George Martin, Brian Epstein, Neil Aspinal, Peter Brown, Astrid Kirchherr, Gerry and the Pacemakers, etc, etc. The idea is preposterous.
