Were you a Beatles fan in 1964? Were you a teenager in 1964? Did Ringo Starr snap a photo of you and your friends piled into a car? If you answered yes to all three of these questions, Mr. Starr would like to speak to you.

Call it the mystery of the Ringo Starr 1964 photo.

Starr is looking for the teenagers in a photo he snapped during the Beatles' first U.S.visit in February 1964, according to USA Today.

He took a picture as the car packed with with teens passed the band on the highway, and now he wants to know who they are. They are probably in their 60s now, and Starr believes the photo was taken somewhere in Florida, possibly Miami.

The famed Ohio State marching band has outdone itself, which is quite the feat. The band performed a show-stopping tribute to Michael Jackson during halftime of Saturday's game against the University of Iowa.

Maybe, but your imagination isn't at good as this band in action. The video already has more than 4 million views on YouTube.
