Here's a very special auction item for you to bid for on the last day of Comic Relief UK fundraising: director Dougal Wilson has kindly donated one of the puppets from his brilliant, Grammy award-nominated video for Coldplay's single Life in Technicolour ii... [thanks Natascha]
You can bid for the puppet on eBay now. This is another chance to own some unique Coldplay ephemera (the band themselves had their own puppet figures, until they were gradually decimated on the final stretches of the Viva La Vida tour).
The puppet is an Indian musician who accompanies Coldplay on a santoor (a trapezoid-shaped hammered dulcimer) while they perform as puppets to a crowd of confused children during Heswall Village Fête. Shown below is a picture of the puppet, and also a still from the video that shows him with the band. The puppet is a modified vintage Pelham puppet, redesigned by the video's award-winning art director Andy Kelly, and equally award-winning costume designer Michelle May.
