You may have already seen the video of Paul McCartney trying to catch a t-shirt at a Brooklyn Nets game Tuesday night, and if you haven’t, you can watch below.
But the video alone isn’t enough to document the brief, exhilarating, and ultimately heartbreaking journey of the former Beatle and music icon. For that, we need to go frame by frame, examining every aspect of his great quest and seeing up close how he cycles through the full range of emotions—each of which he wears oh-so-plainly on his face. The anticipation, the joy, the effort, and the suffering are all there to see. It’s the human drama writ large as Sir Paul bares his soul. Plus, it’s pretty funny.
