Coldplay‘s music video for “Paradise” features the band dressed up as elephants in London, Cape Town, the Klein Karoo in the Western Cape and Johannesburg. Chris Martin starts the film by escaping from a London zoo and stowing away to South Africa to join other members of the band on the veld. The band performs at the FNB Stadium in Johannesberg before returning to the desert.
