Semaphore on the Beatles' "Help!" Album (Not Satanic Symbolism)

Above: The Beatles are spelling out "NUJV" in semaphore. 

The Beatles' 1965 Help! album hit number one in both the UK and USA in 1965. It was also the soundtrack for their second motion picture (also 1965).

Now that PID has been established for many people, the powers that be are desperate to control the narrative. They are spreading disinformation about the Beatles to discredit them (and especially Paul) - trying to convince people that they were somehow "bad," either by being Satanic, or untalented, or some other BS. Haters are only too happy to jump on the anti-Beatle bandwagon. 

Some shills claim that the Beatles were engaging in some sort of Satanic symbolism on the Help! album. In reality, they were using semaphore, which is a system of signaling using flags or lights. 

The original idea was to show the band spelling out the word "Help." However, the photographer, Robert Freeman, thought the shot looked unbalanced. Freeman said:

The Beatles were filming a sequence in Austria where they stood on a skyline in the snow waving their arms to a music playback. From this I had the idea of semaphore spelling out the letters HELP. But when we came to do the shot the arrangement of the arms with those letters didn’t look good. So we decided to improvise and ended up with the best graphic positioning of the arms.

Therefore, they opted for the positioning that was the most visually appealing — regardless of the meaning in semaphore.  Only those who know semaphore would notice.

This is what "HELP" would look like in semaphore:

On the U.S. release (Capitol Records), JohnPaul, and Ringo were rearranged to spell out "NVUJ" instead of "NUJV."

Some Paul is Dead (PID) theorists claim that "NUJV" means “New Unknown James Vocalist” as James was Paul McCartney’s first name. Of course, it was still the real Paul (JPM) at that point (1965). It also does not explain why the American release was "NVUJ."  The secret death and replacement of Paul McCartney is fully fleshed out in Plastic Macca by Tina Foster, available on Amazon.
