The Beatles Yellow Submarine Nothing Is Real T-Shirt – Buy Now
This tee is of course inspired by the band’s soundtrack to the trippy 1968 film Yellow Submarine. We can assume that the logo on this shirt is taken from the artwork of the 1999 UK re-release of the soundtrack album, as it was the only cover which included a reference to the track ‘Strawberry Fields’ with the lyrics “nothing is real” written underneath ‘Yellow Submarine’. Pretty cool, eh?
