Q.  Dear Oracle,
Do you know on which location the Bigger Stronger video was shot?

The video was filmed at such a famous beach called Durdle Door in Dorset.

Q.  Who is the man who is walking on the beach in the clip Bigger Stronger?

I spoke to the video's director Mat Whitecross who as you know also went on to bigger and er, stronger things.
"The actor's name is John Forbes-Robertson .
He was really lovely and incredibly patient. Sadly it seems he died a couple of years ago.
A fact about John - which he told me proudly on set - he was the last Dracula in a hammer horror movie - he played him in The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires".
Here's John's obituary ...

Q.  Dear Oracle,
I was on Youtube, watching Coldplay stuff of course, and I came across a video entitled Bigger Stronger Music Video, it was a video of a man, who went into and elevator that filled with water and then he was in the ocean, he found a beach met one of the hands of the guys from Coldplay, ran off, and then it showed the band eating breakfast or something. Is this real? And where was it filmed? It was a very intriguing movie.
From Jonathan

It is indeed legitimate; Mat Whitecross filmed it. As you may know Mat created the Dancing Politicians video for Violet Hill as well as collecting an award for The Road to Guantanamo. Bigger Stronger was filmed in Dorset.
