Whether or not you are a fan of Gene Wilder or Coldplay, you will fall in love with this tribute to Gene Wilder.
The band took the stage right after Willy Wonka aka Gene Wilder died, honoring him the best way they knew was possible.
As we've heard Wilder sometimes say in his role,"Hold your breath. Make a wish. Count to three." Chris Martin sang the song "Pure Imagination," and as far as it could be seen on Coldplay's Twitter account, it was a sky full of stars and colors embarked the feeling of missing a dear one in hearts of a bazillion people.
The band even shared a clip of the performance on its page. Starting from George Takai, Sir Roger, John Cena and a long string of stars showing their love for the Willy Wonka star by tweeting their personal messages, how couldn't Coldplay give a tear jerker.
We still love to watch him sing "Pure Imagination." Don't we?
"Come with me...And you'll be...In a world of pure imagination."
You will be greatly missed, you beautiful mad genius.
