Love them or hate them, Coldplay is exactly the kind of music you play when you're planning on turning an entire stadium into a rainbow "Believe in Love" sign. Despite the presence of several embarrassing pharma ads, the Super Bowl was out to get young folks to watch the show. What they brought was a massively feel-good medley.

 

We watched the Internet light up twice in relation to the performance, in particular. 

First, people hate Coldplay. And Chris Martin, apparently. The Daily Mail's piece does a rambling job of catching you up on all the snide angles on the Beyonce-plus-Bruno-plus-Coldplay thing. Memes abound.

 

Next, the shoes. As a massively-influential sub-culture, sneakers are fascinating. Nevermind Coldplay's obsession with decopage-scrapbooking-on-your-clothes-with-puffy-paint. Of note, in particular, were Chris' custom Jordan Spizike's. Of course, every sneaker site and thread went nuts. Aaaaaaand, none of us can have these shoes because Nike's ID website is only allowing the customization of the Spizike's in Pre-School Girls' sizes. Hmph.
