You're right.  I don't think it is now.  I just realized that if it isn't,
the audio and video must be from different performaces for those few

That's right.  They could have shown a camera angle that didn't show Pete,
but it's Pete's part of the song, so that would have looked odd, too.

It's a perfectly fine theory.  I hadn't heard about the Monterey monkey
business, but I can't imagine he'd have done it if the right footage was
available.  Sheperton shouldn't require such shenanigans, since it was
filmed from several angles for the film.
