New Coldplay Videos

August 4, 2008


Coldplay has simultaneously released an official and alternate music video for their iTunes pop smash "Viva La Vida." Try not to get too excited.

The official clip, directed by Hype Williams, is basically the iTunes commercial, but much longer. Chris Martin also does some seizure-like arm waving.
In the alternate Anton Corbijn-directed piece, we get see Chris Martin sleeping on the street in his royal crown and cloak trying to survey his fallen kingdom. So sad.
Out of the two videos I prefer the Anton take on the track, the video gels with the song much better and it doesn’t make Martin look like a complete jackass. And I thought that was impossible! Check both “Vida's”…
