Paul McCartney Almost Run Over by Car While Recreating Iconic Beatles Album Cover

Oh lord, this could have definitely gone way way worse. Imagine waking up one day, drinking your coffee, getting in your car, turning on the music, and heading to the grocery store only to pass by Abby Lane, and accidentally run over Paul McCartney.

Okay, so the person didn’t necessarily hit the Beatles member, but they were close. Really really close. The singer was almost hit by a car while he was recreating the iconic artwork for the band’s “Abbey Road ‘ album!

The incident was all captured on video while McCartney was filming for his daughter’s Abbey Road documentary, If These Walls Could Talk. Speaking about the incident, Mary McCartney stated, “The bit where the car nearly ran him over on the zebra crossing, that was so funny. As we were leaving [the studio], I said, ‘I’ll film you [on the crossing],’ and he went over and this car totally didn’t stop for him.”

They decided to share the footage on Twitter, with Abbey Roads Studios writing, “Close call for Paul McCartney on the Abbey Road crossing! In this clip from Mary McCartney’s new documentary, a car narrowly misses Paul as he recreates the ‘Abbey Road’ album cover.”

Run, Paul, Run!

PHEW. Imagine being responsible for a BEATLES’ death. The whole world would riot and turn on you, that’s for sure. 

If These Walls Could Talk is out now on Disney + and details the long history of the very iconic London studio. The documentary features interviews with McCartney, Ringo Starr, Nile Rodgers, George Lucas, Elton John, Liam Gallagher and more! 

“It was quite a complicated documentary to put together, because it’s not about a person or a life story. It’s about a building,” Mary McCartney said, speaking with NAME. “You can tell people really care about Abbey Road, but it’s like, ‘Why do they care about Abbey Road?’ And I think that’s the thing that I wanted to explore.”

The director and photographer revealed that she was debating on doing the documentary “because of my surname, I almost shied away from doing the project”.

Earlier this week it was announced that The Beatles’ previously unseen photos that were taken at the height of their stardom by McCartney will be put on display at the National Portrait Gallery later this summer. It also comes after the singer announced his new photography book, 1964: Eyes Of The Storm, released later this year.
