A Discussion on Coldplay’s Excessive Use of Flowers During the Super Bowl Halftime Performance


Yes, the 2016 Super Bowl halftime performance was one for the books — and for positive reasons this time.

This year, the power stayed on the entire time and everyone’s clothes stayed on, too — win, win — and while we love the Left Shark’s dance discrepancies last year, everyone was in sync this time. Praises.

There was only one thing that seemed a little bit weird to me: the excessive use of flowers.

They just felt a little out of place next to Beyonce and Bruno’s black pleather statement.

I mean, we’ve got flower pomping on the stage.


We’ve got some flowers on the undershirt.

We’ve got a girl scout vest of patches on the jacket.


We’ve even got flower patches on Chris Martin’s pants — though I will say that I love his shoe.

What a night. #SB50 #PepsiHalftime

Maybe it was the kaleidoscope flower light display, the rainbow taffy colored violins, or the colorful crowd participation…

Amazing ?? #SuperBowl50 #BelieveInLove #PepsiHalfTime #SB50 #Broncos #Panthers

But, whatever the factor, there were a lot of flowers.

And they all just seemed a little loud in contrast with the sexy, sleek Bruno and Beyonce black leather getup.

But hey– different genres, different themes. More power to you, Coldplay.
