What if you were to substitute GWAR for The Beatles in the movie Yesterday? Then it would probably go like this.

Yes, GWAR has intruded on the Beatles’ territory–or, more specifically, Yesterday, the current Danny Boyle movie starring Himesh Patel. In the film, a struggling and very ordinary singer-songwriter wakes up after an accident in a world where no one has ever heard of the Beatles. But because our hero knows all their songs, he claims them as his own.

Got it? Now substitute “Beatles” with “GWAR” and you’ll get this.
