Coldplay Video Contest Entry Touts Educational Value of Games

Best-selling band Coldplay has been running a contest which challenges fans to create a video accompaniment to its tune Lost.

Among those submitting entries is education software-oriented website GamingKrib.

While their contest video is essentially a commercial for their business, it also pulls in some fascinating quotes and stats regarding how young people relate to digital tech, gaming and education.

    I thought this was about some entry to a Coldplay contest. Not how agonizingly terrible Coldplay apparently is to someone?

    I’m going to be a hypocrite by commentating on Coldplay. Sometimes music is more about enjoyment than constantly pushing boundaries and evolving culture?  I mean, there’s a reason things become "cookie cutter"–the original pushed boundaries, influenced other musicians, and became the new popular thing.

    I liked the music in this video.

    I don’t see why you all think this music sucks.  Not all recent music is Britney Spears and crap.

    You’re right, it has nothing to do with the fact that the music is absolute garbage.

    Face it, playing powerchords with a few solos and a catchy riff or two isn’t music.  It’s lowbrow garbage. 

    What would Hendrix say?

    Why I have the feeling that there will be a shitload of indie f*** bashing Coldplay ONLY because it’s mainstream?

    Someone needs to make a video that mocks them for being so fucking cookie-cutter.
    Seriously, I hate most music today.  It’s all the same thing, with people who look and sound exactly the same.

    In summation, somebody make a video mocking them and submit it.  Please.
