Very beautiful video. Top comment on YouTube is about how this is wonderful cultural appreciation NOT appropriation. I couldn't agree more. They celebrated a lot of the beauty and traditions of Indian culture, filming real people and being authentic to reality. Unfortunately though, even though the mass majority's opinion is that this is a wonderful celebration honoring culture, some buzzfeed-internet-tumblr people are going to find something to complain about regarding its depiction of India.

Just a thought: at the end of the AOAL music video, you can hear some birds and see some (Indian?) temples in the background. HFTW's music video starts with bird sounds and inside an Indian temple. It seems like this video is meant to follow AOAL's in some way. What do you think?

 

I was wondering about that too right when the video began and I heard the sound effects just before the track started.

But I think it's just a coincidence.

Glad to hear that some common sense prevails. If I see people wearing the viking hat around the world Im certainly not gonna scream "hey you´re stealing my danish culture!" LOL Thats just so stupid. I´d actually be pleased they celebrate my culture and like it :)

I've come to learn from the band to stay away from all the criticising and negativity, accept that there are different opinions, respect them, but stay away from the negativity and enjoy whatever I enjoy without being mad or whatever about what others may think (because I don't even have the right to do so). This means that all the backlash is mute to me.

This is 100% what I do, too. And everybody should do it as well, because most of the times people forget this is music we are talking about. Music. Not some kind of life changing political decisions or religious war matters, only freaking sounds to listen to IF you like them.

that's great! i run into a lot of it, because i use social media to get the latest coldplay news. so i see a lot of it. but i do avoid it when i know the backlash is going to be huge.

Backlash summary:

 

You're not supposed to show any foreign culture unless we're from that country.

You have to show all the modern clubs and buildings even if it doesn't match the theme of the video.

Also, if you dress up in another country's traditional clothes, you're an insensitive a-hole.

By the way, because you made profit from this video showing India's culture and kids, you abused them for money.

 

Seriously, what were they supposed to do? People are so annoying sometimes.

I guess the only way to please people is have a music video like In My Place....but even then, there were two people sitting in the background of that one who probably never got paid for their efforts!

Haha the only way you won't see any backlash is if you literally stand in a white room ;)

British people are only allowed to walk along British beaches in rainy, British weather. :D

 

The colourfulness of the video is making me happy and yet it also has some kind of introspective atmosphere that I really enjoy.
