Q. Which Coldplay music video required the "most" work to shoot?


The Oracle replies:

There are so many elements to some music videos that the work behind the scenes in terms of preparation, filming and editing is longer than you may think.
For example(s), The Hardest Part involved splicing past and present footage, Paradise involved different locations, LiTii required the making of puppets, ETIAW featured graffiti that once created had to be removed and so on.
I'd say that Strawberry Swing required the "most" work to shoot due to its elaborate chalk drawings. Some assume them to be effects but they were real.
When one of Shynola was asked how long it took, he replied, "far too long"
