Paul McCartney’s “My Valentine” Music Video with Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp Signing

posted by Nell Minow

This beautifully balletic version of Paul MCartney’s new song, “My Valentine” features Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp performing in sign language.  The song is featured in McCartney’s new standards collection, Kisses on the Bottom.

NOTE: Do not pay attention to some internet allegations of incorrect or crude unintended words in the signing.  US and UK sign language is different and there are also regional and individual variations, just as with spoken speech.

    Lovely. And you are right about the dialects; that was one of the first things they taught us in interpreting school.

      Thanks, Lynn! So glad you enjoyed it. I learned some sign language from a teacher who told me that the sign for weather was two moving W’s, because the weather always changes, except in California, where you don’t move the W’s because the weather doesn’t change much there.
