Q. Did Coldplay really have to learn to play "The Scientist" backward for the music video?
The Oracle replies:
The band didn't have to play any music backwards for the video. However, the reverse video did require Chris to lip synch backwards. It took him around a month to learn it and on the day of the shoot there were boards with the lyrics written on, just in case.
