The video features a diverse cast of puppets by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop. It follows the fortunes of an alien band called The Weirdos, as they progress from non-human outlaws to the most popular band on the planet (masterminded by manager Bruce Cakemix).
The Weirdos’ lead singer Angel Moon has been a regular performer on Coldplay’s current world tour, singing Biutyful to more than a million people across Europe, the US and Latin America over the past four months.
The video is directed by Mat Whitecross – who previously helmed a number of classic Coldplay videos including Paradise, A Sky Full Of Stars and Adventure Of A Lifetime.
