Birthday film

Most of the streets in LA were decorated with this Ringo poster during my stay there

You may have noticed my absense the first three weeks of July. The reason for this was that I spent three weeks vacationing in the USA, mostly in Los Angeles. While there, I visited the Grammy museum to check out their ongoing Ringo exhibition. It was truly wonderful to be able to study some of the historical artifacts up close, like the Abbey Road/Let It Be drum kit, the Sgt Pepper suit and the black and green 1966 stage suit. The museum also had a film theatre where they were showing a 17 minutes long film about Ringo. The ending of that film was a professionally filmed and recorded version of "Birthday", performed by Paul McCartney at Ringo's 70th birthday bash at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. As far as I knew, this was the first time I've seen this film, earlier I had only seen fan films from this event. However, a YouTube search resulted in me finding this video, uploaded on March 5th this year:
