Paul McCartney released a remix to his song, “Find My Way” from the album, McCartney III Imagined featuring Beck with a brand new music video that included the creative direction & choreography by FilAm Capitol Records Global Creative VP Byron Atienza & Phil “SACBxY” Tayag. You can see signature moves by a young Paul by the Sacramento native.
Byron Atienza is an award winning Filipino-American Executive Creative Director and Producer, based in Los Angeles, CA. Previously running creative at Spotify Studios, Byron is currently the VP of Global Creative at Capitol Music Group. He has worked with the likes of Paul McCartney, Halsey, Chris Brown, Queens of the Stone Age, and ASAP Rocky. He said that “one of the best parts of this entire video production was that Filipino-Americans were behind the creative. I knew that if I ever was in a place of agency, I would open the door for other Pinoy creatives to shine. For this one, it was Phil Tayag, who with his star studded resume, gave young Paul his groovy moves.”
Watch the innovative video below:
You can also catch the music video on billboards in Times Square and on heavy rotation on MTV today!
The music video for the reimagined track takes a younger, deepfake McCartney dancing through a hotel hallway through doors into different locations. To get the look of a younger McCartney, Hyperreal Digital, a company specializing in the “creation of hyper-realistic digital avatars” took the artist’s liking and de-aged the talent to have them perform in creative environments.
At first look, the video makes you do a double take and leaves the younger audience what McCartney looked like during his Beatles days. Plus you get a glimpse of a funky, disco-dancing McCartney who’s busting solid moves.
As mentioned, the choreographer is Phil Tayag and elements of his swag, style and showmanship are evident in the video, but he does a great job to seamlessly mash it with the McCartney deepfake. Make sure to stay until the end as there’s a twist involving Beck at the end with a big reveal.

Dominic Fike released a cover of Paul McCartney’s The Kiss of Venus along with a music video. The song is part of the album, McCartney III Reimagined, which released on April 16th. The album compiles remixes of the album McCartney III that released last winter. Dominic Fike puts a R&B twist on the track along with other artists adding their own flavors. There’s a youthfulness to this reimagined album.
With Dominic taking the reins on his track, the whole project is the definition of collaboration. Although the original album is a recent release, the previous Beatle bridges the gap between generations and artists from then and now. The 78-year-old Sir McCartney himself makes a cameo at the end of the video, seated on a bench outside London. He whistles the tune as the camera zooms in the scene. He slowly lowers the paper to reveal a different look. Then he raises his eyebrows and grins.
