Like most coherent adults, we were shocked during the 54th annual Grammy Awards last Sunday when an alarming amount of people took to Twitter to ask one question: "Who The F*ck Is Paul McCartney?".

The aloof tweets, presumably from non-Beatles fans born after 1990, were funny enough on their own. But now, Funny Or Die has used them to put together a Ken Burns-style documentary short about the mysterious, old, white man's life.

And it's pretty great.

It covers his early life, from when he was born "Sirpaul McCartney" in the 1930s, probably in Europe or something, to his career highlights, including a guest spot on "The Simpsons," his fathering of "well-known celebrity" Jesse McCartney and of course, his big break at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards.

One thing is for sure: he's no "Lil' B" from The Pack. Now THAT'S a musician.
