SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - If you see strange beacons of light flashed through the city on Saturday night it's not a call for Batman, but rather a promotion for Coldplay's new album X&Y.
Either that, or Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has been hired by police as their crime-fighting super weapon.
The letters X and Y will be shone on to various buildings and domains, including George St cinemas between 7.30pm and 9.30pm, Taylor Sq between 11.30pm and 12.30am, and a Harbour Bridge pylon between 1am and 1.30am.
"Please, please, I'll do anything, just keep BatMartin's music away from me," criminals may be moved to plead, while in a strange and secret, location the words: "to the Batcave, Gwyneth" might be heard.Meanwhile, Martin may owe the composers of an ABC TV show's themesong some royalties due to similarities between the theme and one of his songs.
An investigation by Confidential suggests Martin may be a fan of Brit soap Night and Day because his new song Speed of Sound sounds startlingly like the beginning of the TV theme.
The show, still screening in Australia, first ran here in 2002 and ceased production in England in 2003 – way before Martin wrote his new material.
