Added DiffLines:

* Jann Haworth herself created ''SLC Pepper'', a mural on the side of a parking garage in downtown [[UsefulNotes/{{Utah}} Salt Lake City]] (near where she currently lives), which blanks out the Beatles' faces and features, and replaces the faces on the original with [[https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:SLC_Pepper_2015_cropped_%26_revised.jpg a more racially diverse, more gender-balanced and somewhat modernized selection of notables]].


* Even one of the Beatles has done this: check out the cover to Music/RingoStarr's 1973 album ''Music/{{Ringo}}'', which revitalized his career.

Music/GeorgeHarrison's ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Horse_(George_Harrison_album) Dark Horse]]'', which used a fanciful tinted version of one of his old school group photos inside a painted lotus blossom, wasn't specifically intended as one (it was meant as a ShoutOut to Creator/TerryGilliam's animation) but it certainly recalls ''Pepper''.


* The Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam, Netherlands, made one too, [[http://rosiebell.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341cac7d53ef0105364b3e99970c-popup consisting of Jewish celebrities.]]

** In the episode "Homer's Barbershop Quartet" the back cover of Sgt. Peppers is spoofed when Homer looks at an album by his former band.

Added DiffLines:

* Subverted by the Beatles themselves in the music video for "Free as a Bird", released as part of the ''Anthology'' project. The video pays homage to and includes easter eggs to numerous Beatles songs and significant moments in their career, but at one point the camera tracks through a room full of diverse people having a drink and chatting amongst themselves, until the camera quickly pans past the famous "Sgt. Pepper" drum and set-up. The implication is that these people are the notables who appeared on the cover having gathered for a little party after the photograph was taken.


* Mike Allred (Comicbook/MadMan, Comicbook/XStatix) once published a miniseries called ''Red Rocket 7'', which took place during the birth of Rock N' Roll and beyond. Because the music genre provided the backdrop, every cover spoofed a different famous album. This was one of them.

Added DiffLines:

* The end of the film ''Film/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'' (itself a tribute to The Beatles) features a variety of celebrities in a similar formation to the album cover singing the reprise of the album's title track.


* In ''Series/TheMuppetShow'', and subesquent Muppet stuff. Floyd, the bassist for the Electric Mayhem, is usually wearing a Sergeant Pepper uniform. His full name is sometimes given as Sgt Floyd Pepper.
