"This is my first music video, combining motion graphics with full animation and live footage. The video has a gothic, cartoon-like feel, which is reflected in the music. The video shows a construction worker, stopping by some mime artists on his way through the city. He tosses them a coin, and is surprised by an electrifying performance. The video is a performance video with a difference."
