Check out the whimsical Bugeye Sprite with a cameo in a new Paul McCartney music video “Who Cares.” (you can watch the video by clicking here.)
Why a Bugeye Sprite in this new production? You might remember this vintage photo below of Paul and George in in a Bugeye, so perhaps it was Paul’s idea?
But I have a feeling this choice was the idea of the production designer, who managed all the whimsical art and needed a car in the video that would be the appropriate vehicle for anyone who wants to take a stand and stand-up to bullies at the same time.
You might enjoy the “making of” video linked below, to get a sense of how they came up with the visual style for the piece.
Here’s some Bugeye trivia… the original prototype Bugeye had external door hinges as shown in the photo below, kinda like the Bugeye in the video, although the hinges in the video look more like they came from a sureal hardware store than a classic car parts bin.
So…. who cares if you drive a Bugeye?
