Coldplay dropped a very ‘big’ music video for “True Love,” the third off their May 2014 album Ghost Stories, which has reached number 1 on charts worldwide. The video features Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and Canadian actress Jessica Lucas as ballet-loving outcasts donned in inflatable suits. As societal castaways, the two become lovers by the end of the four-minute video. The silliness of their sumo-wrestler-like suits is juxtaposed by the solemness and sincerity of the track. The song is slow, steady, and poignant- in classic Coldplay fashion.
Directed by Jonas Åkerlund- who also did the video for Ghost Stories‘ “Magic”- “True Love” is visually appealing and emotionally heart-wrenching. The video was shot in LA and closes with a ballet performance from ostracized Martin and Lucas and the message displayed that “anything is possible.” You can see Chris Martin as an inflated custodian by watching the video below:
