If you expected to see Sir Paul McCartney starring in his new video for ‘My Valentine’ your disposition could be altered. Though mister Macca himself will not be gracing us with his presence in the video, a dynamic duo is in store.
Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp will assume the roles for McCartney’s latest single, resulting in a pleasant surprise, for those who fancy the two academy award-nominated actors.
While Paul is absent from the video, the two movie stars lent their faces and hands to the video for the first single off the former Beatle‘s new album Kisses on the Bottom.
Three videos for the song on Paul McCartney’s YouTube Page consist of an individual video for both Portman and Depp and one that is edited together of the two actors.
Natalie Portman & Johnny Depp Version
In the simple black and white videos, both Depp and Portman recite the entire song in sign language. Depp not only does all the sign language in the video, he also picks the strings of an old guitar during the breakdown of the song.
Johnny Depp Version:
According to the official Paul McCartney website, the idea for the videos came straight from his fashion designer daughter, Stella, and the videos premiered in her store in L.A. on Friday.
