Sir Paul McCartney has granted animal rights group PETA the rights to use this famous Beatles song in their new adoption commercial. Check it out here.
The Beatles have been notoriously strict about where they allow their music to show up in the public eye. According to a press release from PETA, the remaining members of the fab four have announced that they will allow the animal rights organization to use their hit single “Can’t Buy Me Love” in a commercial for a new adoption campaign.
The video is directed by Steven Willis, and features dogs and cats that had been adopted alongside dancers from the salsa group Baila Conmigo, the team that won the World Latin Dance Cup. The video will also feature several finalists from the TV-show “America’s Got Talent.”
Sir Paul McCartney came out as a vocal supporter of PETA, citing his favorite thing about the group as their relentlessness. Paul has been an active proponent of animal rights for the past 30 years, and he is constantly seeking out new ways to use his influence to help abandoned pets find a new home.
It’s hard to find much of the Beatles’ music anywhere other than their albums. Their music wasn’t available on iTunes for years, and you’re more likely to have a sit-down lunch with Ringo than hearing one of their tracks in a TV ad.
