Beatles Donate Use of ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’ to PETA for Adoption Campaign

Written by Michelle Kretzer | September 29, 2015

“Can’t Buy Me Love”—not at a pet store, anyway. The Beatles, whose songs remain among the most celebrated and beloved music of all-time, have donated the use of the classic hit to PETA to help end animal homelessness.

Directed by Steven Willis, the video features adopted cats and dogs (including a terrier mix who was rescued near PETA’s Virginia headquarters) and dancers from salsa troupe Baila Conmigo, winner of the World Latin Dance Cup and finalists on America’s Got Talent.

Paul McCartney has said that he thinks the great thing about PETA is that it’s “relentless.” It’s also one of the great things about him. Sir Paul has been one of the most active and influential forces for animal rights for more than three decades, and he’s still finding creative new ways to combat cruelty and promote compassion.

Here’s our brand-new adoption campaign video featuring The Beatles’ number-one Billboard hit and one of Rolling Stone‘s 500 greatest songs of all time, “Can’t Buy Me Love”:

It’s hard to imagine an animal advocate more knightly than Sir Paul. Please help PETA do the most good with The Beatles’ gift by sharing our “Can’t Buy Me Love” adoption video far and wide.
