* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Maxwell and his goons are constantly noticing the increasingly obvious references that Music/TheBeatles are including to what's happened in the album covers and music and threatening them with death, but never actually bother to follow through on their threats (at least, not for 10 and 30 years, respectively). The Beatles don't exactly make a lot of effort to hide it either.
* {{Portmanteau}}: John's nickname for the imposter, "False Paul", becomes shorted to "Faul". Near the end of the film, archival footage of the real George talking about Paul on a talk show is distorted so that it sounds like he is really saying "Faul" instead of "Paul."

* {{Jerkass}}: John and George come off as this; although they are apparently supposed to be torn apart with grief about the death of their friend, the fact that John won't stop including cruel references to "Faul" in everything he does from that point on and George views "Faul" with obvious contempt means that one actually ends up feeling a bit sorry for the imposter.

2010 'documentary' film by Joel Gilbert, purporting to tell the true story of what happened to Music/PaulMcCartney in 1966. The full title is ''Paul [=McCartney=] Really Is Dead: The Last Testament of Music/GeorgeHarrison''. It's... not very convincing.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: 'George', on top of not sounding very much like George Harrison, at several points seems to be slipping into Canadian or New Zealand pronunciation.

Added DiffLines:

* AsYouKnow: George flat out states he assumes the listener knows the history of Beatles. However, he still gives a history lesson about the band.
* FoundFootageFilms: A variant. The audio is supposedly taken from cassette tapes that the filmmaker found. The visuals are stock footage and images of the Beatles.

* TakeThat: The creator obviously does not think much of Paul [=McCartney=]; not only is [=McCartney's=] entire post-1966 contribution to Music/TheBeatles (which, in actuality, was ''a lot'') credited to JohnLennon, he also takes the opportunity to make several snide digs at "Faul" in this guise.
