HALIFAX - The premier of Nova Scotia busted out a '70s-style wig and did his best Beatles saunter across a Halifax street today.
Darrell Dexter and Halifax Mayor Peter Kelly re-created the iconic Abbey Road album cover in anticipation of this weekend's Paul McCartney concert on the Halifax Common.
Dexter played Ringo Starr while the mayor went barefoot as McCartney.
When asked why he would be Ringo, Dexter said he hoped it was because he was one of the band members who was still alive.
The photo shoot was an effort to drum up enthusiasm for the concert and kick-start the lagging tourism season.
Members of a Beatles tribute band rounded out the foursome.
