Beck Is a Young Paul McCartney in the Video for “Find My Way”
McCartney III Imagined is out now.
Never have I imagined a young Paul McCartney getting down in a hotel hallway. Thankfully my brain won’t have to do the work, with the latest video from the former Beatle with an assist from Beck providing that visual (the two previously collaborated on trying to get into Tyga’s 2016 Grammy afterparty). “Find My Way” comes from McCartney III Imagined, the remix album of McCartney’s 18th solo LP McCartney III, and its video gets a high-tech treatment aging the musical legend backward with colorful, surreal effects.
The visual was co-produced by Hyperreal Digital, which specializes in the creation of hyper-realistic digital avatars. “The technology to de-age talent and have them perform in creative environments like this is now fully-realized, even with one of the most recognized faces in the world,” said Hyperreal’s CEO Remington Scott in a press statement.
In the end it turns out it wasn’t really a young Paul McCartney after all, but Beck himself in a hyper-realistic Paul mask. I do not make this stuff up!
