Dougal Wilson Gives Coldplay the Punch & Judy Treatment

Dougal Wilson, who has spent the last few years solidifying himself as one of London’s most interesting directors, recently released this video for Coldplay’s Life In Technicolor II. I know the puppet thing has been done a few times recently and pretty well to boot (once by Dougal in fact). But, he has unsurprisingly brought his trademark charm to yet another one. Based on the traditional English puppet show Punch & Judy, puppet versions of Coldplay break the fourth wall and fill the room with pure arena rock.
