Coldplay - Talk
Coldplay in outer space?
Directed by Anton Corbijn
They're really getting more and more U2ish, and the Clip is boring - one idea realised with lots of money, the clou at the end can't change the fact, that there is no rhythm, neither in the song nor in the Video.
more like oasis but corny. geez, what a waste. (hadn't heard the track before - i do hope florian&ko. are laughing their way to the bank...)
what the hell is going on- at lest the other members of coldplay get to come out of the box for this one- nice idea on paper I bet- but oh dear-
Wow that video was amazingly exciting for me. I was on my edge of my seat the whole time. First I was thinking, oh my - where have Coldplay landed themselves this time? Then the atmosphere struck me - what will happen, are they alone, what will they find, who will they meet...and isn't Chris Martin so scrummy!!! (hint: YES!) And then of course, as I am sure you all felt - the reveal of the magnificent robot just blew me away. BTW, what a brilliant leap from the cliff onto the robot - I bet that was dreamboat Chris's idea. By now my heart was racing, the robot alive and the band leading it on.. where were they going, what are they going to do? Answer - an amazing performance! W.O.W.!! Real energy there from the guys. Thank goodness for Coldplay, otherwise that poor robot NEVER would have been able to fit back into the hole in the rock. I can't imagine what the universe would be like without Coldplay. What a lucky robot. I have to say though that the ending ruined it for me. That was a cheap joke and I think it weakens the very important message that Chris gets across in the lyrics so eloquintly. I think with a different ending this would be the best video ever made in the history of forever. Well worth every penny.
oh shit- your my hero.
How have Coldplay and EMI got it so so wrong on the videos for this album. Three words guys... GET JAMIE THRAVES!
The have had Romanek, Muller and Corbijn and about a million dollars and not a decent clip between them, that is not an easy feat.
apart from this being a desparate attempt to inject a bit of life that is the fettid corpse of coldplay; I dont get the bit where thay wear 3D glasses: they are looking at a REAL object - they don't need 3D glasses for fuck's sake. Yeah I dig Chris Martin's reductionist play on "Fair Trade". Perhaps in the next video he could do the reverse: covering his whole body in felt tip, except for the words "Fair Trade". That would be clever.
Was the video supposed to be in 3D, that would have saved this video. If you bought the single you get a free pair of eco-friendly Fair Trade 3D glasses made in a co-operative fair trade farm in Chad or Burkin Faso or something.
Then watching the video would be like actually hanging out with actual Coldplay on the moon. That would be sweet.
What a shit sandwich.
I thought we were done with lens flares... Why do people spend alot of money to copy a low budget style. They should take the budget and spend it on bringing Ed Wood back from the grave.
it's obviously 3d. someone get me some glasses, it might help.... maybe...? yeah probably not.
This is totally weird. Usually I vibe with the consensus, but I quite like this vid. I finally saw this, on TV. The story is sweet and nicely told. Coldplay freaking out there was completely inappropriate, but everything else worked for me. oh well 8)
Reminded me of Corbijn's Mercury Rev vid. And can we say the vid's idea was strongly influenced by that Kraftwerk riff?
I can't believe this got so mercilessly dissed the first time around. Saw this again recently on tv and really fell in love with it.
