MUSIC VIDEOS 39: Coldplay - Clocks

It's rare to see a performance video that really draws you in but Leung captures the energy and passion of singer Chris Martin so successfully that it's hard to take your eyes off him. It's also the first time this has been captured in a Coldplay video with previous work having a more dreamy feel.

Martin is bathed in technicolour lights (at a cost of £40,000) which are carefully choreographed to match the music, its crescendos and its more mellow moments. Simple yet striking.
