Video of Paul McCartney Trying to Get a Free T-Shirt Goes Viral


Paul McCartney
doesn’t want anyone to buy him love, but he really wants someone to give him a free t-shirt!

At least, that’s the impression that many got from a recent video of Macca at an NBA game with his family.

While watching the Brooklyn Nets play the Philadelphia 76ers in New York earlier this week, McCartney tried his hardest to get his hands on a promotional shirt that came hurling towards his section of the crowd during a break in the basketball action.

The rocker can be seen mouthing “It’s mine!” as he reaches out for the prize, but alas, the t-shirt falls just short of the former Beatles’ hands and is instead caught by another fan.

But Sir Paul doesn’t give up quite yet!  Instead he tries to persuade the lucky chap to hand it over, but after that doesn’t work, he eventually congratulates the man on his win.


In other Paul McCartney news, the iconic Wings hit “Live and Let Die,” which was written as the theme for the 1973 James Bond film of the same title, is once again hitting the big screen as a part of the latest Davie O’ Russell flick, American Hustle.

Additionally, it has been announced that Paul’s ‘Sirvana’ collaboration with Nirvana members Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear from earlier this year, entitled “Cut Me Some Slack,” is eligible for an Academy Award nomination in the category of Best Original Song for its use in Grohl’s Sound City documentary.

Here’s hoping that McCartney can even out his loss of the NBC promo t-shirt with an Oscar win come next year!
