Abbey Road by niels827 Abbey Road by niels827
Though I'm not a Beatles fan, the iconic September 1969 photo gracing the cover of The Beatles' 1970 album "Abbey Road" has been parodied hundreds of times across multiple television, movie, music, and video game fandoms, but never have I seen a decent South Park parody. Ironic, given that there are four main characters, so this works particularly well.

Originally I was going to have all characters walking in their normal clothes, with Cartman and Kyle arguing, Kenny reading a porn magazine, and Stan doing something I have yet to determine. I decided recreating the original ( 4.bp.blogspot.com/-c1hA-1HsKW0… ) was best.

There's no particular reason why Kenny is John Lennon or Stan is Paul McCartney. It's not supposed to make sense. Sue me.

You should have switched Kenny and Stan, seeing as how Paul is barefoot since he's supposed to be the "corpse" in the funeral line (and of the boys, Kenny is the corpse =P (Razz)) (Also, Paul is supposed to to have been dead this whole time according to one conspiracy, but maybe he has Kenny's power and just keeps coming back)
Plus, Stan usually takes the "leader" role in their little gang and John Lennon was the leader of the Beatles. 

Other than that, great idea and great art! I can't believe no one has done this yet!

As far as the Beatles' music goes, I preferred the later stuff over the early works. I'd say from Sgt. Pepper on, that was what I liked.

Great take on the album cover!

Kyle is George because George was known to be the nicest one. Cartman is Ringo out of irony. Ringo's large nose led some people to think he was Jewish (don't worry, I'm Jewish too)

I suppose that works, too. But whether Kyle is the nicest one is debatable. He's definitely more confrontational than Stan, and 10 times whinier. Initially I was going to say Cartman was Ringo because others just kinda wanted to ignore him, but that never ended up happening.

I wouldn't say Kyle's the nicest, but he is the most morally upright. George really liked helping people, and so does Kyle
