Coldplay released a 5th studio album several months ago. The name? Mylo Xyloto — MIE-loe ZIE-loe-toe, roughly.
When the band appeared on Good Morning America earlier today, vocalist Chris Martin confessed that they now regret choosing that name:
It’s just something that we thought looked really good but everywhere we go around the world people pronounce it in the most crazy ways and we’re beginning to regret it now.
Here’s the video — watch from 2:09 to the end.
The moral of this story?
Bizarre, made-up names — be they band names or baby names — aren’t so cool anymore after you realize no one can pronounce them correctly [vid].
