The song itself is one of the better things Coldplay have come up with in recent years. I think it's much better than Violet Hill.

EDIT: Ah, I just saw your edit, phanan.

Yeah, I edited after and included the quote so it was clear.

Hey, she's the one who called Martin a twat!

It was hard for me to even hear the music because I wanted to reach into the TV and beat him with a lead pipe. How can anyone watch him move and think he's cool? He's like some dork's idea of what a cool lead singer is supposed to look and act like.

Was he not even wearing a shirt under that jacket? Christ.

Definitely... the only new song I hate is Violet Hill, so that's good I guess, right?

But the hand motions reek of Bono... Okay, he wasn't the first person to move his arm, but you know what I mean.

Not to mention the cheesy costume. CHRIS, YOU ARE NOT PULLING OFF THE WHOLE FRENCH REVOLUTIONARY THING. Just drop it already.

I dunno, look at the Saturday Night Fever thing he's got going on at 0:21. I don't think Bono's ever been quite as embarrassing as that (though, admittedly, the Vertigo Tour cat imitations come close.)

Yeah. I'd like to know what drugs he was taking when he decided that licking his hand and preening himself in front 20,000 people would be a good thing.

Yeah, that's almost as bad.

I don't know though. With all of the aping Bono may do onstage, I always got the feeling it was sincere. While Martin's moves come off as contrived and derivative. Compare Bono at Live Aid to Chris Martin at the Grammy's a few years back.

One's a tender moment with an audience member, the other is a white guy with a fro hopping around a venue like a flying monkey. You tell me who does what.

Ever seen Gavin Friday performing? Bono picked up a thing or two from him...

Unrelated, but there are presently 102 people active in PLEBA and only 17 people active in here. This saddens me. Immensely.

Yeah, all embarrassing Chris Paltrow dancing and gestures aside, I really do like the song Viva La Vida so I'm glad they chose that as the one to be featured in the commercial. I've been spinning it a lot....it's the only other one I've really heard other than Violet Hill and A Spell A Rebel Yell. Nice little song.

Oh, I'm far from a Bono basher. Tired of the way he drones on and on during the One speeches? Yup, but no one forced me to go to as many shows as I did, or to download all the boots. Does he do really cheesy things from time to time? Yeah, but I cut him some slack because I think that overall, his intentions are good. But the cat thing? I just can't abide that. When I see that, I'm embarrassed for him.

I know exactly what you mean, and I agree. There's a level of sincerity that Bono has that Martin is lacking.

He's smart though, he borrows moves from a less popular guy.
