Who knew this celebrity cameo would create memorable TV Magic?
Last night on “Modern Family”, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin played the role of himself in a new episode titled “Brushes with Celebrity”.
In the clip above, Phil Dunphy first meets his musical hero. The realtor attempts to show Chris a property while experiencing pain in an embarrassing lower-body region.
The scene is hilarious for a variety of reasons, but the pleasant surprise is Martin’s over-the-top caricature of his celebrity persona and deadpan delivery.
While the episode also featured former NFL quarterback Terry Bradshaw and other comical “celeb” run-ins, Chris proved to be the highlight. As reviewed by pop culture publication The A.V. Club, his performance is “a truly delightful turn that fits in with the absurdity of a testicle-based storyline.”
Chris just recently returned from the road after his lengthy ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ tour wrapped last month, becoming the third-highest-grossing of all time.
Watch his ode to Phil — another highlight from the episode — complete with handwritten lyrics below.
