I know the video is old, but I didn’t see it until today. I have a lot to catch up on still. But I only made this gif because this moment in particular struck a chord with me… It may seem out of context, but I think it’s something a lot of people need to hear right now, either way.
Mark has been there for us, has worked so hard to be the best he can, and now it’s time for us to be there for him. For better or worse.

I want to wish a happy birthday to our amazing drummer and adorable teddy bear, Mr. Will Champion. Even though you joined the band on a whim and without being an actual drummer, you stuck through thick and thin and proved to be one of the best drummers out there. You are and will always be Coldplay’s emotional anchor. I still can’t believe you’re the youngest out of them. It’s always a pleasure to read / watch / listen to your interviews. I always feel like I learn a little bit more from you. Stay awesome, Will.
