Music videos[edit]

All three songs on the EP have a music video self-shot by Moby:

  • "Be the One" - Shot by Moby while flying from New York to Los Angeles. and edited by Jo Haggis.[2] The video features an extreme close-up of Moby singing directly into the camera while he is walking around in different locales. It reportedly represents the drudgery of touring.[3]

  • "Victoria Lucas" - Shot by Moby at night in Los Angeles[5] The video features black and white shots of the city that move to the music with a kaleidescope-effect.
