Is this really a 1964 outtake by the Beatles during their Hard Day's Night recordings?  Or was I just punked...?

Some of the spoken word is real, but the song is a total fake. 1964 is over a decade early to singing about a "cell phone". The first proper "cell phone" was invented in 1973. So, straight off, the lyric makes it impossible...

EDIT: And after further checking, the song is originally by Canadian rapper Drake, and was (apparently) a big hit earlier this year according to Wikipedia.

Yeah, what Ron Nasty said.

That's a decent impersonation, though.  Whoever did that sounds a bit like the Beatles (not exact, of course.).

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

Sounds like a crap Beatles knock-off. 

Oh, it is.

Okay, I thought so (although it's not impossible that John could have thought of the term "cell phone" as a kind of nonsense term -- or maybe spelled "self phone / selfone" as a whimsical play on words).

I recall looking at a vintage Marvel Comics of the Fantastic Four from 1963 and in one panel it clearly shows Mr. Fantastic sitting at what looks like a desktop computer!
