*Paul NEWS*

Leave a Birthday message for Paul at your Favorite Starbucks.

*Well you can’t say that the new Starbucks label isn’t trying.  They

certainly are at least attempting to create some kind of buzz around for

Paul McCartney’s upcoming albums.   There are exclusive **listening

parties*<https://www.hearmusic.com/mccartney/global_listening_event.html>

* around the globe, secret websites, free lithographs, rumored McCartney

promo appearances,youtube** video singles and even, no joke,an appearance by

Paul on the **Home Shopping

Network*<http://blog.wired.com/underwire/2007/05/startbucks_pimp_1.html>

*.  You have to admit that they have churned up the old PR machine.  It’s a

bit odd too, most of this stuff has happened in the last week or two, or

will be happening in a few days.  It’s almost like the were a bit late to

their own party.*

*The party is something we all can celebrate however.  How’s that for a bad

segueway?  Starbucks is filming a birthday message to Paul at select

locations on June 5th in addition to all the great stuff mentioned above.

It looks like you guys can be the star in leaving Paul McCartney your own

message, and words of love on his birthday. This looks like a lot of fun.  I

have to commend that Starbucks people, they have pulled out a few rabbits

from the hat, and made waiting for an album fun again. *

*Here’s what we’ve read. *

*In addition to the Global Listening Event taking place at more than 10,000

Starbucks locations around the world, Starbucks invites McCartney fans to

make music history by participating in a unique video tribute honoring

McCartney’s 65th birthday. *

*On June 5, film crews will disperse to 11 key Starbucks locations in cities

around the globe, including London, New York, Berlin, Los Angeles,

Philadelphia, Atlanta, Seattle, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Miami.*

**

*Fans can deliver a birthday message directly to McCartney at a designated

store location in these markets. These messages may be included in the video

tribute which will premiere on June 18, Paul McCartney’s birthday, via a

host of online outlets. *

*Participants in the video are encouraged to bring memorabilia, make

homemade signs, and dance along to the sounds of “Memory Almost Full” as it

plays overhead.*
