“On November 19, 2016, we asked you to show us what was happening in your corner of the world…”
And thus begins Coldplay’s latest video, which then transitions into a compilation of fan-made footage encapsulating an “amazing day.”
Coldplay received thousands of submissions from fans after their November 19th prompt, and they have since used it to create a new video for their Head Full of Dreams single “Amazing Day.” The new release shows scenes of smiling children, weddings, adventure-seeking sky-divers, sightseeing tourists, and Coldplay concert footage, among many others sights, resulting in a beautiful and diverse array of meaning.
“Amazing Day” provokes a sense of nostalgia in every viewer; it’s a compilation of images that seeks to unify all corners of humanity. My favorite piece of footage is of two individuals hugging on the sidewalk in what seems to be a reunification of friends.
On November 19 2016, we asked you to show us what was happening in your corner of the world for our Amazing Day global film project. Thousands of you did. Here is the finished film.
