New Coldplay Videos – “Viva La Vida”

Yes, “videos” plural. If you’re like me, you assumed the iTunes commercial was the official video for Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida.” But no, there are two new videos to absorb as part of Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends’s revolutionary snore. The official clip, directed by Hype Williams, is basically the iTunes commercial, but longer. In the alternate Anton Corbijn-directed take we see Chris Martin sleeping on the street again, awaking in his royal crown and cloak to survey his fallen kingdom. The text at Youtube says it was “made out of love for Depeche Mode and the genius of Anton Corbijn.” Enjoy the silence:
