Chris Martin, Billy Crystal make fun of themselves on 'Modern Family'

On Wednesday’s episode of Modern Family, Chris Martin from Coldplay and Billy Crystal cameoed as themselves and took a couple light jabs at their public images.

Chris Martin gave Phil Dunphy a wardrobe tip and joked at his signature style: “Get a T-shirt. You put it on top of a long-sleeve, then it lets everybody know you own multiple shirts.”

While shopping for a house, Martin admitted he was “kind of flabbergasted that there’s no bubble machine.”

After Phil fell ill with an infected testicle, Martin was too helpful and Phil asked him to leave. Dismayed, Martin admitted, “I’m a distraction. Everyone wants to say ‘hi’ or they want to take a picture or they want to sleep with me … And it’s a nightmare. It’s beginning to affect my creativity. The last song I wrote was about my helicopter. I was too ashamed to release it. I had to sell it to Qantas for $1 million.”

On the other hand, Crystal didn’t get the rock star treatment. He practically begged to be recognized at a diner. He spouted references to Saturday Night Live, City Slickers, and The Princess Bride but only got concerned looks from Gloria and Manny.
