Music video[edit]

The Rasmus in the music video of "Shot"

In the video for "Shot" (directed by Sandra Marschner), the band seems to be in outer space, singing on a desert-like planet. The video consists of mainly alternating between close-ups of each band member and different angles of the whole band. Fast zooms and camera angle changes are used in parts of the video. At one point, there is a close-up of singer Lauri Ylönen's eye and a comet flickers across his iris. This is very similar to a part of the video for "First Day of My Life", in which a close up of Lauri's eye is seen with a reflection of a racing track.
