This ad has been around for awhile. Year 2000 or so, right? When I first saw it then, I thought I'd love to own a shirt with that image.

WTF??? Year 2000??? It's like from 1960's.

The concept and the ad look "bernbachian" (meaning old thinking). I mean, I love Bernbach's stuff, but not for 2007.

Meh. I've just seen this album cover used so many times in other ads and pieces of artwork. It's too obvious.

It's such a cheesy pun that it actually is kind of fun. Good work.

Nice pun. Just out of pure curiosity, it's not seem like the same street, is it ?

If you check the link that 'ellehcimeo' supplied above, you'll see it is the same street. The buildings match, but it seems to have been shot at a different time of year, so all the trees are bare. They've even got a couple of the same cars parked in the background. A London cab and an old white VW Beetle.

Yeah, I noticed the nice details (cars in the back) but the street really seemed different. Guess I'll have to change my eyes again.

Love it! Although the angle feels a little off. But I may be misremembering. What makes it work is that the Abbey Road cover features that white VW Beetle in the background. So Beetle + Beatle = new Beetle. Quick, clever idea.

i think the ad is great.
this picture was taken today so the scenery on abbey road has changed a bit.
also beetles are much larger in size than the beatles so the perspective looks a little off of the album cover. also the picture was taken at a different time of year and a different time of day than the album cover so the sun isn't in the same place and the leaves are gone. this was probably taken in the early morning before traffic came through.

i'm a huge beatles fan and huge beetles fan so this image i think is wonderful. very creative, probably one of the best remakes of the abbey road scene that i've ever scene.
