“Let it Be”… gone. Gone far, far away. UPDATED!

If John Lennon were alive this would kill him.

A Norwegian program, Gylne Tider,  has put together a video of (mostly) American and Norwegian celebrities singing “Let it Be.”  I have no idea what the show is about, but that isn’t the issue. The issue is: Is David Faustino a star? Is Fab from Milli Vanilli still legally allowed to be called a star? Why is George Wendt singing? Why isn’t Peter Falk singing? And why isn’t William Shatner in it at all?  

These questions, and more, brought up but not answered:

Sadly, this may have been the last screen appearance of Leslie Neilsen, and that’s just cruel.

UPDATE!

David Faustino has gone on record to explain his part in the wonderful mess that is the Gylne Tider “Let it Be” video:

My first reaction was “well, NOW that video  is cool.” As a planned event it sucks, but as a celebrity prank it is hysterical.

My second reaction was “David Faustino called himself a celebrity. He either has a lot of nerve or he’s delusional.”
