Walruses, barbers showing photographs, and fools on the hill, sure. But it's not every day Paul McCartney pals around with an automaton. The Andre Chocron-directed video for "Appreciate," a moody, electronics-smeared track from the Beatles legend's 2013 album New, shows Sir Paul as an exhibit in a museum of humans. A robot named Newman (New man, get it?) is on night watch duty when this historic-bass-guitarist display suddenly comes to life. The two dance past various scenes of homo sapiens life, and eventually the 'bot even provides the guitar solo. Somewhere, deadmau5 is probably feeling very satisfied right now
