    Coldplay's "True Love" Video: Chris Martin Dances in a Sumo Suit, Meets a Stereotype-Busting Ballerina: Watch Here!

    Talk about your big love.

    The usually rather willowy Chris Martin both alludes to the isolating discomfort of being different and not-so-symbolically shows how huge his heart is by donning an inflatable sumo suit in the new music video for Coldplay's "True Love," off of their latest album, Ghost Stories.

    But Martin actually isn't alone—he has Jessica Lucas, starring opposite him as a lithe ballerina sporting her own sumo suit and is therefore ostracized by her fellow dancers and frequently turned down for gigs.

    However, the free-spirited, beautiful ballerina doesn't let it get her down, and she's proud to dance to the beat of her own drum, while Martin's more lonesome-seeming janitor goes about his daily duties and entertains his own fantasies about the corps de ballet. He even gets his own Gene Kelly on, dancing solo with a mop.

    Hmm...who wants to bet that "True Love" conquers all?!

    Seriously, the sweet ending is a must-watch—and no, they don't ever lose the sumo suits. They're already swans, after all.

    Jonas Åkerlund, who also helmed Coldplay's "Magic" video, directed this trippy ode to staying true to one's self.
