Paul McCartney Poke Fun At Hard Rock Calling Curfew In New Olympic Promo

by (@zaragolden)

England may be serious about rules, but not so serious that they can’t laugh at themselves. A new promo for the Olympics — which he is rumored to close with a “Hey Jude” singalong — finds good Sir Paul McCartney mocking the strict curfew keepers who pulled the plug on his headlining set with Bruce Springsteen at Hard Rock Calling in London earlier this month. “We’re all getting excited, we’re ready to rock,” says the former Beatle before diving into a rocking rehearsal. But just halfway through “I Saw Her Standing There,” the sound cuts out and McCartney is left wondering, once again, “Who pulled the plug…?” We like to believe that, if this sort of power-out happens during the real thing, closing ceremonies attendees will be well enough versed in Beatles classics to all together now help take that sad song and make it better. But for the sake of all rock-and-roll moments sacred, let’s hope this is the last time McCartney has to ask that question.
