“Heart of The Country” clip from Paul McCartney

Nothing like having Paul McCartney tweet your latest viral animation. It’s speculated that this mysterious (and delightful) piece is tied into promoting the line of vegetarian products for Linda McCartney Foods. Paul is a longtime fan and supporter of animation – but the director of the video has yet to be identified. C’mon, whoever you are, fess up!

UPDATE – I knew my plea would get results. The animation is by Jordan Bruner.

    Hmm looks like clean & tidy Gina Thorstensen and Nacho Rodriguez

    This version of the song is a new one. It is not the original recording from RAM.

      Yeah, it sounds like it wasn’t made all that long ago either. Its the more haggard Paul voice (sounds like Live Springsteen ugh), as opposed to the sweet voiced Paulie from Ram. Can’t top that version IMO.

    I love it, the style is very unique and the animation is fun to watch. The song is a new version as well, I’d love to find out more about this. :)

    Great looking commercial! Is it wrong I was eating chicken while watching it though?

    I’ve know the multi-talented genius Jordan Bruner since she was a child and always knew she would go far. LOVE this!

    Wish they sold the food in the USA. Those veggie sausage rolls look pretty good.

    Great animation, rotten song. Just heard a half hour of free advertising on the BBC (Radio 4), promoting Macca’s vegetarian tosh. Why does he always sound more insincere than Tony B Liar? One can’t help wondering if Macca had anything to do with the horse meat that ended up in the UK food chain, lol. All very conveniently timed. Promoting vegetarianism is one thing, having a hugely lucrative business running on the back of it is morally dubious when using his fame to lobby world leaders.
