Rockers Coldplay showed off their comedy skills on U.S. TV on Saturday night (12Nov11) as part of a skit about the power of fellow Brit Adele's emotionally-charged ballad Someone Like You.
The band were shown sobbing backstage at Saturday Night Live, where they were the week's musical guests, while watching a comedy segment where host Emma Stone and members of the TV show's cast played office employees using the hit to trigger crying sessions over missed promotions and feuding pets.
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin also made an appearance on the show as a bad wig-wearing 'back-up singer' for comedy couple Garth and Kat, played by comedians Fred Armisen and Kristin Wiig.
Wearing matching Thanksgiving themed waistcoats and turtle-neck sweaters, the trio attempted to make up songs about the holidays on the spot.
