At this point, Coldplay are old hands at the supremely goofy rock-star stunt, and their new video for “A Sky Full Of Stars,” the Avicii-produced track from their new Ghost Stories album, certainly qualifies. In the clip, the members of the band walk down a busy city street, playing the song while wearing ridiculous-looking one-man-band getups, and the throngs of passersby seem absolutely thrilled to see them. It’s structured to look like they surprised everyone, and I have my doubts, but maybe. Either way, the video walks the line between “nice” and “embarrassing,” and that line is pretty much where Coldplay live. I come down just slightly on the “nice” side, but your mileage may vary. Watch the video below.
