Jimmy Brown - 20th Jan 2012

After spending 3 months to climb to No.1 in the singles chart, Coldplay release a new promo to accompany their evergreen Paradise, this time directed by Shynola.

In the promo a young girl - brilliantly played by Lily-May Crosby - leaves prison, nicks a car and drives to The North to find her 'paradise'. Arguably Coldplay's grittiest video ever, it's also a bold step into working in live action by the Shynola team after so much wonderful animation work (and this does include some lovely animation). Excellent stuff.
