Coldplay’s Strawberry Swing – Music Video & Art

In this new Coldplay video for Strawberry Swing, we take a journey with Chris Martin. As a modern day superhero, it's no surprise that he saves the girl in the end. What is surprising, is how well done this stop-animation video is. Notice that chalk was used to create these scenes. Of course, you may also notice that they used a lot of the same techniques as you see in videos spread all over the web, but that doesn't take away from the fact that this is a beautiful piece of art. My favorite part? The last few frames. When the story ends and reality sets in. It's like we've been taken on an amusement park ride and gently the ride stops, telling us that we've come to the end. What did you think of it?
