Q.  Hi Oracle!
A few days ago I was searching for videos in YouTube and I saw one in which was Chris and the actor of Spiderman kissing... omg is this really true?


Truth... well, it's true that it happened but it was a set-up joke on a U.S TV show.
Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone (& Chris) were guests on Saturday Night Live back in May (2014). There was a skit where Andrew & Emma were recreating a Spiderman film scene that involved kissing. The premise was they couldn't get it right which is when Chris stepped in to say that he can show them how it's done. That's how the kiss* came about.
*Chris was wearing a wig.

Q.  Hi Oracle!
I've been looking EVERYWHERE to find Coldplay in the SNL skit but I haven't found it yet! I couldn't find it on YouTube, and I tried googling it but no success. Would you happen to know where I can see it?

-Cristina :)

Yes, there are a few websites that have the clip, including this one.

Q.  You can see the Saturday Night Live Weekend Update skit with Chris!
Here is the link.

It is the 3rd video down. ENJOY!

Ah, no, YOU can as you're in the U.S but we can't. I went to that link yesterday and as is the case for many American clips, it says "We're sorry, but the clip you selected isn't available from your location."
Thanks for trying though. I have actually edited yesterday's answer to include a clip that does work...

Q.  Oracle, hello there. Oh great one! Have to say the Saturday Nite Live
episode was great. I laughed so hard when Chris was on the Weekend Update segment. Would he consider doing comedy-acting? Thank you Oracle!

It's a shame we can't all watch the clip of Chris in the Weekend Update* sketch but if you watch this SNL skit from the same show instead, you will be rewarded around the 3'18 mark.
Chris has appeared as himself in a couple of comedy things; Extras and a very real life interview with Ricky Gervais - neither of which had elements of truth to them. It's a fun perk of being in Coldplay and Chris is a very funny guy, but the band is his passion so he'll be sticking to that.

*Thanks to Jesse for the Weekend Update link.

Q.  Hey most-smarticle-Oracle! Plz help me!
I watch the show SNL every Saturday,(do you?)and I remember the time Coldplay was the musical guest.Oct. 25, 2008 to be exact! I thought they played wonderfully but I couldn't figure out one of the songs they played at the end credits... It puzzles me from that day on... Please if you can list all the songs they played that night! (In order preferably).
Thank you so much! :D
Viva La Coldplay!

Their first was Viva la Vida followed by Lost! The 3rd song was Yellow and the song that's puzzling you is Lovers in Japan which was the closing credit track and therefore cut as soon as it got started!
