Coldplay Spread Good Cheer and Cheese in 'A Sky Full of Stars' Video

Chris Martin and co. busk around town for latest 'Ghost Stories' clip

Dan Reilly

Coldplay's Avicii-assisted "A Sky Full of Stars" is certainly meant to be a crowd-pleaser, with its poppy EDM build-ups and saccharine lyrics. The song's new video takes that feelgood vibe and runs with it, or rather walks jaunitly with it, as Chris Martin and the lads stroll through town as though they're buskers, amassing a following of fans along the way. The band members all don their usual instruments, adding on some drums and random pieces, like the one dude with a pan flute — all odd choices, considering the song is basically synth-driven. But whatever, Martin grins his way through the whole thing, looking like he's having a grand old time fake-playing his acoustic guitar while creating an impromptu parade for the Ghost Stories track. Join in the fun above.
