Recently a dvd surfaced featuring about two hours of footage from Pauls disasterous Japan visit in 1980, it’s pretty good quality and i was able to get a few interesting screen captures, it’s interesting that you get to see Paul soon after his pot bust where Paul tries to keep up the cheery, bounce along, thumbs aloft Macca on display, this soon comes unstuck when he cant lift his arms due to the handcuffs to display the reassuring thumbs aloft, the second sign that things are turning stinky is when he got close to the press and chirped a cheerey ‘Good evening’ only to have the detectives scream at Paul ‘NO! NO! NO! NO!’ you can almost lierally see the blood drain from Pauls face as he says in a slightly paniced voice ‘ok, ok’

The grin soon to be wiped from Macca’s face.

That’s our Macca, even in the face of nine years hard labour he still sneaks a thumbs aloft out the back window of the Phantom Agent-esque police car.

    How dumb was it for Paul to have this in his own personal suitcase and throw a whole tour this way. Ts, ts Paul, not everyone stopped at your thumbs-up-cute-moptop image, certainly not Narita customs on that day.
