Coldplay's 'Hurts Like Heaven' video brings their comic to life -- VIDEO

The music video for Coldplay’s “Hurts Like Heaven” is a prequel to their planned six-part comic-book series, which shares the title of their album Mylo Xyloto, and plays out as the book’s pages are turned. The video depicts a social uprising: A group of superheroes challenges the leader Major Minus and flees from the militaristic police. They’re ultimately caught, but a glimmer of hope survives.

Although I prefer my Coldplay videos with elephants instead of superheroes, the clip’s Orwellian themes and underlying message about the importance of creativity and self-expression make it a win in my book. Even if you had never heard about their comic book, which will be published monthly beginning in February, the video complements the song’s up-beat music and lyrics perfectly, especially the colorful love story.
