BTS And Coldplay Throw An Intergalactic Hologram Concert In 'My Universe' Video
Earlier this year throughout their MTV Unplugged

's stadium heartstrings singalong "Fix You" for a resonant performance
that Coldplay later praised as pretty It wasn't just a random cover — BTS and Coldplay have a large amount usual as chameleonic global pop stars. Both groups remain comfortably, regularly on a little list of acts that could conceivably claim to be the hugest in the world.
That's perhaps why their inevitable team-up is called "My Universe." (Any other title wouldn't perfectly convey the scale.) As you'd expect, the music video for this big-chorus pop jam is expensive, intergalactic, and loaded with enough special effects to create you feel like you're actually living in another reality. The Doomsday Clock is set at one minute to midnight, and BTS and Coldplay are going to sing their song up until the end of the world.
It starts with an absolutely incredible bit of scene-setting that I'm going to include in full below and also you understand precisely the sort of Avengers
-scale team-up we're dealing with here:
Once upon a time, several years from right now. Music is forbidden across the spheres. On three different planets, three different bands defy the ban. DJ LaFrique, on her alien radio ship, unites them by means holoband. All of the if they are hunted by the silencers...
A prosperous text! We're in the future (or past?), And planets are called "spheres," and music isn't allowed (like in Footloose
) and entities called "Silencers" are prowling to put a stop to it. In a brave act of resistance, BTS Coldplay along with one third musical group — eventually revealed to be aliens whose members reflect the Jedi High Council — sync up their holograms by means of the "holoband" and throw a bash to "My Universe." Then things get sticky.
The computer effects in this video are wild and must've cost so much cash. Nevertheless once you're two of the largest bands in the universe, you could do this. (The third musical group, made up of robot drummer, butterfly lady, along with a Mad Max
-styled alien on space guitar, might also have pooled resources for this clip; I am not familiar with the mechanics of intergalactic record contracts.)
The visual was unsurprisingly directed by blockbuster maestro Dave Meyers. If there was any doubt about the sheer scale of this video, even the promotional poster has shades of Avengers: Endgame
"My Universe" appears on Coldplay's upcoming ninth album Music of the Spheres
, which is out October 15. Check out the epic video above, then dive into previously released singles "Higher Power
" and "Coloratura
