Music video[edit]

This video includes Yulia and Lena after filming the video for "220", riding off on motorcycles. Lena (in the computer-generated video) is on the red bike and Yulia is on the black. While driving vigorously on their bikes they are surrounded by police officers and make the decision to ride their bikes into each other, choosing death over captivity. The entire video is computer animation and enhancement, including the ending, in which their exact point of death is covered by a flash of lightning over their bikes. The words "Danger Do Not Try to Reproduce Dangerous Stunts Performed By Yulia And Lena!!!" appears at the beginning of the fully computer animated section of the video. Before that point, slight computer enhancing was used on Yulia's eyes in the close-up shot of her face while she was getting dressed and the steam over the stove, as well as some lighting enhancements. Both the Russian Snegopady version and the English Snowfalls have been released on YouTube to follow the Russian video 220.
