Paradise is the first single off the English alt-rock band’s fifth studio album Mylo Xyloto.
The video for Paradise features frontman Chris Martin in a plush elephant costume making his way from a zoo in London all the way to South Africa by any means available; the tube, a plane, and you guessed it, a unicycle…that Martin is actually riding. As a matter of fact Martin took to Twitter to make sure we knew they didn’t hire furry doubles.
Once Ele-Chris gets to South Africa, he meets up with his bandmates who are also in full, fluffy elephant costumes. They throw in a little concert footage for good measure, but then the final shot is all the Coldplay Pachyderms running across the open plains in slow-mo!
