Lauri Ylönen in the music video for "No Fear"

The video depicts a girl with an apparent obsession with butterflies. She follows them out of her bedroom and sleepwalks across roofs, and through streets. The girl eventually comes to a roof of glass panes and falls through them into the building. It is unclear whether the girl has died or not, and she appears to end up in a garden with a bed situated in the middle, surrounded by butterflies and flowers. While she is sleepwalking, a swarm of butterflies become animated from pictures behind where the band are performing, and other places around the building.
