Raw sex in A-ha video
The video for the song was directed by Jörn Heitmann, famous for directing the videos of Rammstein, and was filmed in a brothel in Berlin. It was considered controversial by fans and the media due to its strong adult content, featuring topics not as clear in A-ha videos before; sex, drugs, suicide, prostitution, and alcohol had never been so prominently featured in the band's videos, although sadomasochism had been noted in the previous release, "Move to Memphis". Heat sensors are used to show some of the more graphic images from the video.
One Norwegian newspaper held the headline, "Raw sex in A-ha video" after the video was officially released on September 24, 2005.
Magne: "The video is about people who have lost their direction in the hunt for meaning - and loneliness as a result of lost innocence."
