 Post subject: Beatles reference?

Did anyone notice the graffiti on the walls when Rose is under the overpass/bridge? When she enters it says “Paul” in red, I believe, and during a closer shot the world “Beatles” appears on the upper left also in red.

Was there any reason for this or was it just random because the director likes the band?

What part of the movie did this happen in? I'll be sure to keep a look-out when I see the movie again, tomorrow :D :D :D

Yep. It reads the BEATLES CHERYL, among other things.

If this is so - wouldn't it just be another visual clue and/or game reference?

Cheryl...and beatles...let's ignore the Beatles band business and think just beatles...you know the squishy things Cibyl was, well, squishing with a mighty vengeance with Rose?

Those are spelled 'beetles. The band name isn't the insect name, it's just similar - or else (I forget which Beatle) wouldn't have said, in reference to where the name came from: "I 'ad a dream, and in it I saw a man on a flaming pie. He tol' me 'You will 'ave a band, and it will be called the Beatles, with an "A"'." I forget what that was on, and which Beatle it was, but it was an interview with one of'em on TV once.

[edit]Also, those bugs were more like roaches than beetles.[/edit]

I heard there might have been a Johnny Cash reference too, but apparently it's too subtle for me.

Wasn't that just at the part where they played "Ring of Fire" on the jukebox? Or are you not referring to that?

rofl...nice.

I guess there was a Rolling Stones reference in there. Well not so much of a reference, but she does say "I can't get satisfaction"
