Willie Nelson does Coldplay!

The commercial features a charming rendition of Coldplay’s “The Scientist,” covered by Willie Nelson. 

Some said Willie was doing Coldplay better than Coldplay. I’m not sure that is fair, even if I do see what they mean.  Willie does indeed do a great job with this one.
