Paul McCartney.. Mistake Mistake.

Okay, so first I have to say this. For someone who's generally not had a hit song in some time, Paul McCartney's latest release 'Nod your head' is incredibly catchy,and edgy/modern. I heard this song last night and haven't been able to get it out of my head. But my problem lies elsewhere. For a song that could potentially do pretty well, why the hell would the people behind McCartney release one of the most poorly executed videos I've ever seen for someone as well known as him.

I think we can all agree that the video just doesn't do the song justice, not does it have any sense of artistry, complementation to the song, or nor does it even go with the song for that matter. I saw it and thought I'd post it because i felt it had so much potential and could have really gone somewhere but dropped the ball.

Below I included the video for the song as well as the video for "Dance Tonight", which was directed by 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"'s Michel Gondry and randomly features Natalie Portman throughout the video. Very different videos.

As you can tell, I'm very video obsessed today..

I personally like how Regina Spektor's Fidelity video was made.
