Music video[edit]

t.A.T.u. in "Nas Ne Dogonyat" Video

The video starts off with Yulia and Lena's mugshots being placed on screen, with the truck's engine starting up and steam surrounding the two girls and the vehicle. They then are outside in a snowy environment, where they steal a large truck and ride off through an airfield, breaking through a fence while singing. The two girls later find themselves in snow-covered Siberia. They run over a construction worker in the middle of the road, who is played by Ivan Shapovalov, the music videos director. After breaking through another fence, some family photos of both the girls as young children are shown during the video. Towards the end, Lena and Yulia climb to the roof of the truck and stand on top, hugging and smiling as they continue to sing the song, until they crack the lens of the camera as they leave.

CD single information[edit]

No single CD or legal digital download for the song were ever released, though an official music video was made. The song did appear on a promo CD released in Poland in 2003, along with other singles of the album, though the CD is not considered an official single for this song. The song would only be made available as an individual legal download when the band's debut album was released on iTunes in 2004. It can also be legally downloaded individually off their greatest hits album, The Best.

However, there was a promotional CD Single which was released in Poland by Universal Music Polska, the Polish label for Universal Music. However, it was used as an A-Side for "Ya Soshla S Uma" at the time.[2]
