If you haven’t taken a moment to check out Paul McCartney’s new video for “Who Cares,” carve out some time, because it is visually stunning!
The video stars McCartney as a Dr. Lorenz, a “behavioral hypnotist meteorologist,” and actress Emma Stone as his patient. As the treatment begins, McCartney and Stone are then launched into a bizarre, art house fever dream that’s absurdly entertaining.
The song’s anti-bullying message coincides with the video’s producer partner, Creative Visions, a global non-profit that uses various art forms to help create social change. In a statement about the song and video, McCartney said, “My hope is that if there are kids being bullied—and there are… Maybe by listening to this song and watching this video, they might just think it’s not as bad… that it’s the kind of thing you can just stand up to and laugh off and get through.”
“Who Cares” can be found on McCartney’s latest studio album, Egypt Station, which is available for stream/download/purchase at PaulMcCartney.com.
