Up&Up Music Video

Recommended Posts

Wow! I'm not sure if it really fits the song, but I love it! I think it's the first "artsy" music video by them:D

don't forget lit ii, strawberry swing :) to me those were pretty artsy too. but this is definitely the most surrealist mv they have made.

Wow okay whew, I felt like watching a fantasy film from the 90's mixed with Tumblr Aesthetics™.

 

 

THAT WAS FUN! :cheesy:

 

And I think extremely well made aND NOT AWKWARD for a change. And holy crap, Coldplay just kept on growing, that was somewhat terrifying hahah :uhoh:

Looks like the band-on-bikes scene wasn't for this video, I wonder what video's next! (too early, I know)

Oh yea - forgot about the bikes......... hmmmmmm?

This vid's very clever and entertaining - love the giant-sized CP... just not enough of them.

My expectations weren't exactly low after what Chris said, but the video is even better than I expected! I love it so much!!!

the graphics are INCREDIBLE, it features the band, it hy as a message and it's just so beautiful!

Anyone who thinks new coldplay sucks should watch this.

The only thing I don't like is that they used the radio version of Up&Up.

Is that the Gaza apartheid wall I see at

? Either way. The underlying message is very moving, the end result beautiful.

️️Incredible video, so trippy.

 

I love psychedelic things, first Georgia's ESC entry, now this really different and unique look at the world from Coldplay.

 

I think that new Radiohead album and videos have woke them up a little bit, it is a stellar video compared to the others in this era. I'm sad they didn't use the album version, but hey for what it is, it's bloody brilliant.

 

:D

the details of him creating waves with his foot ~2:30 is incredible. the level of detail is impressive. this video must have taken a long time to create.

I don't think coldplay had already heard the radiohead album or seen the videos when they made the Up&Up video. It must have taken pretty long to film all the footage and edit the video, apart from that coldplay are wearing the outfits they were wearing in the photos from the beginning of the era.

That was brilliant !!!!!:omgomg::omgomg::omgomg: It rivals Strawberry Swing and The Scientist in terms of creative and well thought music video. It may seem like a collection of random mindf**** s**** going on but almost every image has something to say about society today. It is one of my favorites Coldplay music videos to date. I'm really impressed by it. The only downside is the short radio version of Up&Up, but for me it's only a detail, nothing that would make me dislike this brilliant piece of art :D:D:D.

Love the video. It's visually amazing, very artsy and trippy, with a surrealist touch. The message is beautiful too. There's just so much to discover and see! The amount of detail is insane! Really enjoying this. I just wish they had used the album version. But still, it's brilliant. A true artistic masterpiece, in my opinion.

Did you notice that the edit used for the MV is not the radio one?

The video broken down by NME :P

http://www.nme.com/blogs/nme-blogs/69-mind-boggling-things-we-witnessed-in-coldplays-new-video-for-upup?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social

In the following blog we will attempt to list, in order, all of the strange, surreal and symbolic things in the mind-boggling new Coldplay video for ‘Up & Up’ (which, by the way, is the track from their latest album, ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’, on which Noel Gallagher plays guitar). OK, let’s get on with it:

 

1. Turtle flying through subway station

2. Porpoises in the sky

3. People swimming in washing machines

4. Person swinging from satellite limb

5. Normal-sized girl fishing by tiny Golden Gate Bridge, or really enormous girl fishing by normal-sized Golden Gate Bridge, we just don’t know

6. Women on balcony looking directly out at constellations

7. Synchronized swimmers in teacup

8. Football match happening on cake shaped like a football pitch, possibly in a giant’s kitchen. Again, we just don’t know

9. Lady diving into clouds

 

10. Popcorn erupting from volcano, combining two of our greatest fears

11. Totally impractical skyscraper cereal

12. Inception-style world-bending

13. Massive Will Champion playing massive drums in a valley

14. Massive lady swimming above city

15. Bald eagle flying underwater

16. Boat soup

17. Huge Chris Martin lying all over fields, unknowingly causing untold devastation

 

18. Pasta skydivers

19. Flying manta ray, friend to surfers

20. Upside-down sky-boat

21. Big Jonny Buckland treading on fields and all wildlife in them

22. Cyclists scaling skyscrapers

23. Irresponsible baby clutching onto aeroplane wing

24. Person jumping off tortoise head into water

25. Mountain-sized Guy Berryman playing bass for his mountain friends

 

26. Car driving over city buildings

27. Big Will Champion again, this time on shiny archipelago

28. Car recklessly driving through mystery tunnel to space

29. Submarine-rider and general weirdo

30. Massive butterfly drinking from oil rig

31. Tiny elephants following big Hoover

32. Protestors by big house of cards

33. Colourful upside-down city hanging above sea

 

34. Washington Monument high-jump

35. Big girl

36. Wormholes parachuting. (Yes, seriously)

37. Big Guy Berryman again

38. Go-kart on the moon

39. City plagued by beautiful but obstructive and untameable flowers

 

40. Cosmic superhighway

41. Chris Martin leaning back on a mountain, possibly causing avalanches

42. Subway turtle

43. Underwater plane

44. Enormous poppies underneath tiny helicopters

45. Rocket people with a death wish

46. Large Johnny Buckland obstructing a plane’s flight path

47. Horses racing over the sea by a motorboat

48. Skiers on a huge snow pillow

 

49. Johnny B in the clouds again

50. Planes in a double world

51. Planets hovering above the pavement

52. Star tunnel

53. Someone swimming on the side of a car (this is our favourite image, by the way)

54. Guy Berryman properly way above cloud level. Like, what a tall dude

55. Someone trying to iron a waterfall, the idiot

56. Continent-sized swimmer raising sea level significantly

57. Chris Martin stamping on crops again, does he actually just hate farmers like

58. Subway window to distant galaxy

59. Flying jellyfish monster

60. Porpoises in the sky

61. Kids running to a horizon, with view of much broader horizon

62. Encore: washing machine swimmers

63. Drivers circling Saturn’s dust ring (a close second-favourite image)

64. Chris Martin even bigger than before, lying on the land with a plane flying past his ear

65. Model plane flying past a bookshelf on a mountain

66. The satellite swing again

67. Even bigger Will Champion on a tiny bit of land, where will he sleep and eat and stuff

68. People falling upwards

69. Person swimming through clouds

 

In all seriousness, the video makes important points about refugees, war and the environment – with shots of environmental destruction, refugees, and even Donald Trump's 'wall' – so make sure to give it a proper watch:

 

They spelled Jonny's name wrong but we will let them know :P

Artsy, meaningful and visually stunning - great video. The frequent use of swimmers was a bit boring, though.

 

By the way I also thought the wall on the beach looks like the wall between Israel and Palestine - it could fit in with the general message of the video against divisiveness and for unity (and environmental care) on this planet.
