Chris Martin singing ‘Yellow’ in a comedy cockney accent: watch here
Chris Martin appeared yesterday (Oct.27) on Us late night show (TBS) and talked with host Conan O’Brien about his career and his musical theatre past, including a student staging of My Fair Lady.
Coldplay’s frontman admitted he got a lousy part in the musical (the chimney sweep, who talked Cockney) but they said “you can’t sing”.
Chris and Conan joked about the singer’s accent, traditionally spoken by working-class Londoners and the host gave him a flat cap so that he could give a mockney take on ‘Yellow’, Coldplay’s famous hit.
