The video, features McCartney and Stone cavorting through minimalist hand-drawn black and white backgrounds. The video was directed by Brantley Guitierrez and choreographed by Ryan Heffington, the former of which has worked with McCartney many times on his tours.

The feature starts off with McCartney hypnotizing a rain-soaked Stone who falls into a trance. As the music kicks in, it moves to a surreal environment with Stone in harlequin-inspired makeup. The video is meant to be the kickoff for a new anti-bullying campaign, shared on social media with the hashtag #WhoCaresIDo.

Creation of the "Who Cares" short was led by Creative Visions CEO Kathy Eldon, reports Variety.

"We need a shift in consciousness to make 2019 a year of caring," Eldon said.

McCartney and Stone filmed the creative undertaking over two days in October, which was difficult to coordinate with the megastars' busy schedules and limited availability.

    In the end, is this just an ad? Sad.

    Tim Cook should spend less time saving the world and more time selling iPhones.

    Anti-bullying campaign? Bullies don’t care about campaigns like this. In fact, it’s unlikely a bully even views their actions as bullying. Better to teach the weaker kids self-defense or how to run and escape because sadistic, aggressive kids won’t be convinced they’re in the wrong.

    Should be titled "Who's going to see this?" Apple Music. If it's that important just stick it on YouTube. Otherwise teach your children how to punch back.

    Yep. Kids who are aggressive toward other kids don’t respond to being lectured.

    iPhone is already the single-best selling handset in history, the most successful consumer product in history, and the most profitable smartphone. It’s already achieved more success than anyone could have possibly asked for. So you’ll have to find something else to troll about, bro.

    It’s a link to the video in Apple Music. Worked fine, here. If you don’t have Apple Music how do you expect it to play for you?
