Will Ferrell Surprises Coldplay's Chris Martin on Stage with More Cowbell

Chris Martin, the lead singer from the popular band Coldplay, was performing on stage when he was surprised by a movie star guest who strolled onto the stage and stole the show! None other than a cow bell toting comedian, Will Ferrell, joined Chris on stage while he was performing an acoustic version of ‘Viva La Vida.’


At "Will Ferrell's Best Night of Your Life," a cancer-charity concert, the Talladega Nights alumnus Will Ferrell made the crowd go wild when he came out on stage. Chris was performing "Viva La Vida," and started laughing when a very serious-faced Will came out clanging away!

Will Ferrell made the cowbell part of comedy history when he was on SNL in a sketch with actor Christopher Walken who kept demanding ‘more cowbell!’ In the sketch, Will Ferrell’s character very seriously played cowbell to a popular classic rock song.

Chris Martin looked very surprised and then immediately walked over to Will. After laughing a bit at the straight-faced Will seriously playing cowbell, Chris continued playing--happily sharing the stage with the comedian.

Will took the idea of photobombing to the next level with this appearance! And while some may have been annoyed by the intrusion, I love what a good sport Chris was about Will’s unexpected joke. He was obviously not upset at the surprise and seemed so genuinely happy to be part of the joke!

Micah 6:8 But he's already made it plain how to live, what to do, what God is looking for in men and women. It's quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor, be compassionate and loyal in your love, And don't take yourself too seriously - take God seriously.
