Matthew Perpetua

Coldplay went to South Africa to film the video for "Paradise," the second single from their fifth album, Mylo Xyloto. It's a very cinematic clip right down to its title cards, which makes a lot of sense given that the song itself sounds like what you'd expect to hear in the trailer for a big, prestigious Oscar-bait movie. Luckily the band cut through the overwhelming seriousness of it all by dressing up in animal costumes. Yes, that's right: the latest Coldplay video features a shot of Chris Martin in an elephant costume riding a bicycle.
