The world will end in a maddening display of inconceivability on January 20th, when Ringo Starr guest stars on the premiere episode of the returning Powerpuff Girls, and to prepare everyone for the end he’s recorded a song and made a video and now I’m going to let you watch it so you can have your mind blown:

Honestly, though, the time is as ripe for Ringo to make a third-act comeback as any. With the 50th anniversary of the Beatles first ever US tour coming up in February, there will be more opportunities for exposure than there have been in a long time.
