Music video 1[edit]

The music video was directed by Sebastian Ringler and was shot in Gällivare, a town in northern Sweden. It is inspired by the story of Bonnie and Clyde and set in the 1930s. The video begins by showing a woman working in a bar as a waitress (played by Swedish actress Madeleine Martin Minou). At the same time, a blond woman enters (played by Swedish actress Hedda Stiernstedt) and asks for a drink. She sips it and then throws the glass against the wall behind the bar. This signal leads them to unsheathe their guns and rob the place. They continue touring the snowy roads in a car. Arriving at night at home, they lie down on a bed while caressing passionately.

They subsequently decide to steal again from a bank, and in the process they stop and start kissing passionately at a table while the bystanders watch. The blonde woman places an explosive on the door of the safe box, but the police arrive and a sniper (portrayed by Avicii) shoots her dead. Finally, her grieving partner decides to take revenge by taking the explosive off the safe, running out to the waiting police officers, and suicidally blowing them all up.

Music video 2[edit]

The other music video features LEGO minifigures. One of them is being held captive by guards in dark suits and helmets who bleed blue blood. The protagonist escapes and kills most of them. It turns out he is searching for a female minifigure who is being held captive by the guards. He breaks her out and together they kill the remaining guards in a final shoot-out. At the end the protagonist is hurt and bleeds blue just like the guards. It turns out that he is one of them unlike the female minifigure who bleeds 'normal' red blood. They kill off the last guard after he tries to kill the protagonists and escape together.
