"True Love" may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Chris Martin these days, but it is the title of the latest video from Coldplay's Ghost Stories.

Should Coldplay, Katy Perry or Rihanna Play 2015 Super Bowl Halftime?

In the clip, Martin plays a mild-mannered janitor working at a ballet. Incidentally, he's always wearing an enormous inflatable suit (presumably this clip is about body image issues).

Martin finds his soulmate when Pompeii actress Jessica Lucas -- also wearing a giant inflatable suit -- shows up at his workplace to take in the ballet. After the show wraps, Lucas struggles to lift herself out of her chair.

Meanwhile, Martin -- presuming the theater to be empty -- takes the stage to dance with surprising grace for a man in an inflatable suit. Lucas is smitten with him and they quickly fall in love via the magic of dance. 

The message seems to be "overweight people can fall in love too," which is kind of like, "Yeah, we already knew that."

The Jonas Akerlund-directed clip ends with a card reading "Anything Is Possible," which is especially true if you're the leader of one of the world's most popular bands.

Watch it above.
