Remember when Coldplay tweeted the picture of what was supposed to be a shot from the video and it was Chris playing piano? ..what about that model they had hired?
Anyone know what happened to that idea?
I really like this video, though. I thought it was very funny, simple..and cute...haha. :D

It was scrapped, they thought it wasn't happy enough. I would probably prefer the elephant one :)

No there won't be. Chris confirmed in an interview they scrapped the first video because it was too depressing.

She's how I picture the girl in the song. Hype Williams is incompetent though. -.-
Agree about the girl and hype williams (not happy about him directing, actually Mat Whitcross has been excellent for them, wish they would get someone like him - will hold out hope for a great video).
Coldplay Team With Hype Williams For 'Paradise' Video
'We're just following the things we love,' singer Chris Martin tells MTV News about working with Williams again.
Coldplay already told MTV News that they decided to roll the dice and go with the inscrutable title of Mylo Xyloto for their upcoming fifth album.
But when the time came to make a video for their second release from the disc (due October 25), the beat-infected "Paradise," they went all in and reteamed with a director best known for lensing clips for some of the biggest names in hip-hop and R&B (Kanye West, Mary J. Blige, Rick Ross). "We just started to do a video on Monday on 'Paradise,' " singer Chris Martin told MTV News at the Austin City Limits festival. "And the bits that we're not in are being done almost as we speak."
The new clip — whose concept Martin kept under wraps — is being directed by Hype Williams, who first worked with the band three years ago on the title track to their last album, Viva La Vida. That clip had the feel of a Renaissance painting, complete with cracked paint effects, and Martin said they decided to work with Williams again because, well, why not?
"We're just following the things we love," he said. "The video we did before, for 'Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall,' we did with our friend Mat [Whitecross], who is the most indie of indie filmmakers. It's just nice when you can try both approaches."
Between working with Williams, opting for a cryptic title and roping in a surprise cameo from Rihanna on the song "Princess of China," Martin explained that Coldplay are just rolling the dice because they've kind of earned the right. "We felt like so many people have already made up their minds about us ... both good and bad," Martin said. "That we can sort of start again from scratch and try and reflect all the music we listen to and love."
