Video of the day: the magic of the Abbey Road zebra crossing

Posted at 11:00 am, June 21, 2013 in Fun London

Enjoy this beautiful six minute meditation on the Abbey Road crossing, a place where thousands of people every year flock to recreate the famous Beatles album cover. ‘When you think about it, these beacons have been blinking day and night, year in, year out, ever since the Beatles were here. On and off, millions and millions of times, like the pulsing heartbeat of half a lifetime.’

Directed by Chris Purcell, and narrated by Roger McGough, it’s a lovely little film. Then, enjoy this timelapse of tourists striking the inevitable pose in the course of a single day.

Just make sure you don’t go to the wrong Abbey Road, though…
