Coldplay's new music video features famed Charlie Chaplin monologue
Coldplay debuted the music video for “A Head Full of Dreams,” the title track from their latest album, on Friday. Filmed in Mexico City in April, the clip show’s the band cycling through the city and toward Foro Sol, the venue where they performed during their most recent tour.
But the video, directed by Marcus Haney, starts on a surprising note — Charlie Chaplin’s speech from The Great Dictator, a monologue that the band has been using to open their arena tour. His words are set against footage of Mexico City shot mostly on 8mm-film, before Chris Martin and co. show up in the frame.
“A Head Full of Dreams” music video follows videos already released for “Adventure of a Lifetime,” “Hymn for the Weekend,” and “Up&Up.”
