That's right - alien invaders tried to cause mass suicides across America!
You know I was talking about Toobworld, right?
Bryce Zabel and Brent Friedman's TV series 'Dark Skies' was about a conspiracy to hide the fact that aliens were living among us since the 1940s Roswell crash. Known collectively as "The Hive", the aliens were trying to manipulate the country through some of the pivotal events in American history.
And the Beatles' first appearance on 'The Ed Sullivan Show' was no exception.
From the IMDb:
Loengard and Sayers uncover a Hive plot to use the Beatles American television debut to induce a mass suicide.
Tracing alien radio transmissions received in New York City, Loengard and Sayers suspect the Hive is planning an operation around the American debut of the Beatles on 'The Ed Sullivan Show'. At the studio where preparations are underway, they find nothing suspicious. However, after learning the radio operator they're tracking died recently in a mysterious traffic accident, they find a second phone number for another suspect operator.
Luckily the plot was thwarted so that the general public's perception of their appearance could coincide with what really happened in the Trueniverse.
IF that's what really happened here......
The Beatles were portrayed by:
- Carmine Grippo as Ringo Starr
- Tim Michael McDougall as Paul McCartney
- Rick Anthony Pizaria as George Harrison
- Joe Stefanelli as John Lennon
