Cillian Murphy and his cheekbones star in this short film promoting Stella McCartney’s Fall 2017 menswear collection and, boy, is it creepy.

McCartney told Business of Fashion that it was pretty easy to get her dad to contribute. “I want weird sh*t, which you can do, Mr. Sgt. Pepper,” she told him. As you do.
The idea for the collaboration itself came together when Ellis and Murphy attended McCartney’s menswear launch last fall at Abbey Road Studios. “Two weeks later, we’re filming in a forest outside London. That’s how we roll at Stella,” she said. Check out the end result below.
