The Beatles Story's Facebook fans become April Fools

Here at The Beatles Story we played a small practicle joke on our 91,000 Facebook fans for April Fools' Day. We posted the following post to our Facebook page "Did you know that our Yellow Submarine in our exhibition is the actual submarine from The Beatles' 1968 animated classic 'Yellow Submarine'. It was brought to the exhibition in 1990 from Pepperland by a close friend of the The Beatles Story, Mr Ray Tour. We're only joking, Happy April Fools' Day!"

The submarine from the animated film 'Yellow Submarine' was handdrawn in the late 1960s, so the only way you could own the original submarine was if you had the original handdrawn drawing. As for our friend Mr Ray Tour, he's not real either, he was just word play on 'Mystery Tour'.

Even though the post wasn't true, the fans of The Beatles Story Facebook page didn't mind as nearly 1,000 people liked the post. We even managed to fool somebody who was a Beatles Tour guide, they said "You had me going then! Was thinking 'wow, after all these years as a Beatleguide never knew that! Silly me...it was only a drawing haha".
