Rob Lowe told a hilarious story about catching Paul McCartney singing along with the Beatles’ song “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da” during a lunch event.
The 54-year-old actor told the tale on Monday’s broadcast of The Late Late Show when the show’s host James Corden asked him what it was like the first time he encountered the legend.
Here’s the clip:

But then the former Beatle explained the meaning of the song “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.” https://t.co/riENSTL3K1

In the interview, the Code Black actor described seeing McCartney at an exclusive couples lunch and feeling so awestruck that he could barely eat. When a Beatles song came on, Lowe found himself wondering if Paul would notice the song and that’s when he caught sight of the 76-year-old icon singing along with his own tune.
Lowe described what happened next:
He looks up at me, and he sees that I’ve seen him, and then he turns red and gets embarrassed. Then I get embarrassed that I’ve seen him do it, and it gets really, really weird, and then he doesn’t really know what to say.
Commenters on YouTube enjoyed watching Rob Lowe tell the story:
In a terrible accent, Lowe went on to describe what McCartney had to say regarding “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.”
It’s not even really a lyric . It just sort of popped into my head at the time.
And that’s when James Corden hilariously interrupted, asking Lowe:
Sorry, where is he from at this point in time?

Another great Beatles tale for the vault.
