Emma Stone rocks out with Paul McCartney for his new “Who Cares” music video

Legendary singer-songwriter Paul McCartney has teamed up with MANIAC and LA LA LAND superstar Emma Stone for a musical short film which serves as a music video for his new "Who Cares" single. The presentation was uploaded on Monday as an Apple Music exclusive, but has since been released to the public via YouTube earlier today.

Directed by Brantley Gutierrez and Ryan Heffington, the video features Stone as a patient of McCartney's, whose perscription for Emma's ailments is an anti-bullying tune complete with expressive mimes, gasp-inducing magical acts, and a former Beatle hypnotically shaking his hips to and fro. Produced by Creative Visions – a nonprofit that inspires social change through the power of art and media – and shot entirely on 65mm Kodak Film with Panavision Cameras, "Who Cares" offers music fans an anthem to inspire change among their fellow man – something that we can all use as the New Year approaches.

“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," McCartney said in a statement. "It’s the kind of thing you can just stand up to and laugh off and get through.”
