So, after the Grammy Awards last Sunday (Feb. 12), a trending topic on Twitter was “Who is Paul McCartney,” which, sure, on the one hand – Twitter is used primarily by 12-year-olds (probably), but on the other hand – seriously?

Naturally, Funny or Die couldn’t let this opportunity pass them by, so they made the wonderful video you see above, making a fake History Channel biography of Sir Paul. Warning: Profanity.

We think our favorite parts are:

  • “Sir Paul’s greatest fame came when he performed at the Grammy Awards, making him the most random white dude to perform since those guys in the Suburbs last year.”
  • “After Sir Paul sung his first song, they cut to Chris Brown, who is so, so fine. I don’t care what they say, I’d let Chris Brown punch me in the face.”
  • “The world may  never truly know Sir Paul McCartney, but we do know that he was old. And totally random. And not as good as Little B from the Pack.”
