2016 struck again on Sunday when it claimed the cinematic comedic legend Gene Wilder. As will happen when mourning the loss of a great individual, many have been paying tribute by revisiting some of joy Wilder contributed to our lives. On Monday evening in Denver, Coldplay did just that by covering a bit of the classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory song “Pure Imagination”.
Performing at the Pepsi Center, the British band tucked a soft cover of the song into the end of their own “The Scientist”. They later shared a clip of the rendition via Twitter, which you can watch below.
