I hope this video will help to open eyes to the beauty of the world around us. Regardless of the troubles we face, the demands made of us by modern living, or the fast paced run we are all thrown into. Sometimes you need to stop for a second to see the happiness of the moment. We see that what we want to see.

The director was Eugene Filatov (The Maneken), sound producer Onuka. The costumes were designed for him by designer Lesya Patoka. The central element of the clip was Ukrainian mythical and folklore images, in which allusions to the symbols of Mexican, Japanese and African cultures are noticeable. To create the images in the video, the team of designer Lesya Patoka collected 15 bags of second-hand items.

All outfits were created from recycled materials, no new buttons or fabrics were used.

Zenit track was included in the list of songs of the new release of the dance simulator Just Dance. Earlier, the music video for the song Strum, shot by director Alan Badoev, was nominated for the International Social World Film Festival
