Music video[edit]

The music video for "In This World" features aliens from a small asteroid, who are planning a manned mission to the Earth bringing customary Earth greetings, including "Hello", "Hi", and "Hola". Three aliens and their dog-like creature then board a flying saucer en route to Earth. They land, and quickly realize that the people, inhabitants of New York, are much larger than they had expected—so large in fact that the aliens go unnoticed, despite their best efforts. At the end of the video, a man (played by Moby) notices them, but walks away. They then go back to their home planet, and make a giant sign, bearing the word "Hello".

The music video for the song "Sunday (The Day Before My Birthday)" acts as the sequel to the story.
