Chris Martin?

with 8 comments

You know how sometimes you can have a thought about something but it’ll take ages to actually come out? Well, today I realised that after months of looking at the icon and having this thought fleetingly in my head, maybe the reason I listen to Coldplay so much on the bus might be because the little “Artists” icon on my iPod looks like Chris Martin. Am I alone? Do you think it looks like Chris Martin? Or am I stupid and, duh, of course it’s Chris Martin?

Screenshot of the icon I’m talking about:

And yes, I do have Aqua on my iPod, and I’m buggered if I’m ever gonna be ashamed about it, because “Cartoon Heroes” is a bloody magnificent song.

  1. I’m going to venture and say it looks a little more Bono-ish. U2 was one of the first “big” iPod celebrity endorsers…

  2. Hm, at first glance it looks more like a singing Homer Simpson to me. Maybe I should get my eyes checked.

  3. Obviously Thom Yorke…

  4. Dana is right, it is Bono. This was discussed when the iPhone launched and somebody spotted the link with the promotional images from the launch of (one of) the iPod U2 special edition iPods.
    See here. They just adjusted the microphone to a more traditional angle.

  5. Nice work, Dana.
    And thanks for the evidence, Andrew.

    Now I have no excuse for listening to too much Coldplay.

  6. A little bit of Chris Martin every now and then is good for the soul, I think!

  8. "Cartoon Heroes" is pretty much the only Aqua song I'll listen to. But it's fantastic. :)
