NEW YORK - NOVEMBER 02: Metal band GWAR performs live onstage for the Viva La Bam tour at Roseland Ballroom on November 2, 2007 in New York City; The Beatles in a television studio for the filming of a global broadcast of their song 'All You Need is Love'.

The Beatles-themed film Yesterday recently crossed the $100 million mark with its worldwide gross, but perhaps the film would have made even more money had it been about GWAR instead.

Okay, maybe not. However, YouTube channel Ryan’s Shorts created a new parody trailer for YesterSlay that instead imagines a world without GWAR instead of the Beatles, and it’s rather brilliant.

If you needed an example today that the internet isn’t always a forever-burning dumpster fire, look no further than the video below. The late Dave Brockie/Oderus Urungus must be looking down (or maybe up?) at this and smiling.

This video will mainly appeal to people familiar with GWAR who have also seen the trailer for the upcoming film Yesterday, about a man who wakes up from an accident in a world where he is the only who remembers The Beatles. So about a dozen people.
