The music video for the single was also extremely well received, picking up 200,000 views in its first two weeks, as well as receiving promotion on Twitter by Ashton Kutcher, Lily Allen and Katy Perry.

On its first week of release, "Making Mirrors" came in at number one on the ARIA Australian album chart, making Gotye the first Australian act to simultaneously hold both the number one single and album since Silverchair, who achieved the same feat in 2007.
