"Dreaming Wide Awake" video was released on 10 February 2010. It was directed by Oskari Sipola. The video premiered online in HD quality on YouTube.[4] It features actors Kai Bäckström and Jemina Sillanpää,[5] starring as two lovers and shows the consequences of loss, as it is revealed later that the woman died and the man is not able to cope with the loss which makes him lose his grip on reality. The heavy snow environment adds to the feeling of cold and isolation.[6] The video was shot with a Red One camera. Shots of Marko Saaresto singing were shot on the top of the Cirrus building in Helsinki, the tallest building in Finland.[7]
