RINGO DOES GOLDFINGER

British actor/comedian/director Peter Serafinowicz has pulled off some spot-on Ringo Starr impressions, but one video called Ringo Remembers Goldfinger will appeal especially to Spy Vibers. He brilliantly captured the former Beatles' matter-of-fact approach to interviews and song structure. And I love the premise- what if Ringo had been invited to write a theme for the Goldfinger film? The results were utterly charming and hilarious. Move over Neil Innes and The Rutles. Enjoy! Our agent Craig offered these funny song suggestions for spy fans: Octopussy's Garden, we all live in a Lotus Submarine. See our interview with Craig in our For Your Shelf Only series here. Ringo is back on tour during February and March. Details here

  1. This reminds me very strongly of a classic sketch from Alas Smith and Jones:

    Given their popularity in the UK, I have to wonder if Serafinowicz wasn't heavily influenced by the earlier sketch when doing this one.
