My daughter, Stella, suggested the original idea to have Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp use sign language to portray my recent song, My Valentine

Paul McCartney – From, May 25, 2012

It was great having them round. Natalie came over with her husband and new baby, which was very lovely, very family. Johnny came over and he has a friend who makes guitars out of lots of things like cigar boxes and wine cases, and he brought over a wine case-bass for me. He also sent over a little cigar box amp and guitar which is fantastic and so we had a jam. And I had to stop and say we better do this film!

Paul McCartney – From For Whom The Bell Tells, December 31, 2012

McCartney would soon use this cigar box guitar, to record “Cut Me Some Slack” with the ex-Nirvana members.

The “My Valentine” promo films were premiered at the Stella McCartney store in Los Angeles, in April 13, 2012.
