Paul McCartney Enlists Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Sean Penn + More in ‘Queenie Eye’ Video
Sir Paul McCartney doesn’t need any special effects to make a great music video — all he needs is a little help from some famous friends. And that’s what the Beatle gets in his brand-new ‘Queenie Eye’ clip.
Filmed at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, the video opens with Sir Paul seated at a grand piano, playing the track for a take. However, within the first 45 seconds, we find Johnny Depp casually sitting and listening to the song on his iPod, and he even sings along. As the video continues, Jude Law, Meryl Streep, Jeremy Irons, Tom Ford, Tracey Ullman, Chris Pine, Sean Penn and even Take That’s Gary Barlow appear in the room. What seemed to be a solo recording session is now a big dance party — even the ‘Iron Lady’ is kicking up her heels and Kate Moss is showing off some sultry moves.
“We are here in Abbey Road Studios, which for me, of course, is flooded with memories,” McCartney said in a behind-the-scenes clip for the video.
Inspired by a childhood game he used to play, the song has the catchy rhythm that we’re used to hearing from McCartney and is the latest single off his recently released album ‘New.’
No matter how many A-listers he throws into this video, Sir Paul still ends up becoming the most famous human being in the room. But it’s fun to watch them all come together and party down on Abbey Road.
