paul mccartney promotes meat free monday

If you ever wanted to work with Sir Paul McCartney, your chance is finally here. The former Beatle is asking people to submit photos to be included in the video for his new song ‘Meat Free Monday.’

The tune was recorded to celebrate five years of the movement urging people to not eat meat at least once a week on Mondays.

To be in the video, all you have to do is pick any (or all if you’re feeling ambitious) line of the song, write it down and take a picture of yourself with it. McCartney’s picture is just on a simple piece of paper but since you’re most likely not a music legend, you can get more creative with it. The line can be written on sand, carved into veggies or any other outlandish idea that can get you noticed. Post the photo on Twitter or Instagr.am with the hashtag ‘#MeatFreeMonday’ by midnight on August 22nd and you might just be in for your 15 minutes of fame.

McCartney has been a strong proponent of Meatless Mondays since its early days. The proud vegetarian inspired Hard Rock Cafe London to be part of the movement and his daughter, vegetarian fashion designer Stella McCartney, released a tank and t-shirt to support it in 2010.

You can listen to the ‘Meat Free Monday’ here or to make your life easier, we’ve included the lyrics below.

MEAT FREE MONDAY LYRICS

(Intro)

Meat Free Monday
It’s a fun day
And it’s happening all around the world

Meat Free Monday
It’s a fun day
And it’s happening all around the world

Think about the future
How the world will be
If we don’t do something
We face calamity

Think of greenhouse gases
Melting polar ice
Ocean levels rising
Better not think twice

Meat Free Monday
It’s a fun day
And it’s happening all around the world

Meat Free Monday
It’s a fun day
And it’s happening all around the world

Think of too much livestock
Warming up the land
Gotta think of answers
Gotta have a plan

Think about the future
How the world will be
If we don’t do something
We face calamity

Meat Free Monday
It’s a fun day
And it’s happening all around the world

After Sunday
Meat Free Monday
And it’s happening all around the world

(Instrumental)

Meat Free Monday
It’s a fun day
And it’s happening all around the world

Meat Free Monday
It’s a fun day
And it’s happening all around the world

Meat Free Monday
It’s a fun day
And it’s happening all around the world

(Fade)
