Music video[edit]

A music video to accompany the release of "Midnight Run" was first released onto YouTube on 21 October 2011 at a total length of four minutes and four seconds.[2] The video was filmed in Iceland, and sees Example sink into his bathtub before emerging out of an Icelandic spring. He then proceeds to embark on a road trip with a mysterious blonde woman before turning up at a remote cottage below the Northern Lights. The car used in the video, with the special license plate FEED ME to honour the song's producer, is a classic Ford Mustang Fastback from 1966 equipped with a High Performance 289 V-8 and the famous Pony Interior package in Red.[3]
