The subject of the video is newsprint, and features a connect-the-dot of the band, a crossword puzzle, a printing press, and articles from newspapers from around the globe.

Some of the clips of the band were printed in the style of black-and-white newspapers, but are in a moving format.

Magne: " 'Manhattan Skyline' was perhaps one of the most inspired cut and paste projects that Paul and I did. I wrote the quiet part. Paul wrote the rock part. I thought I was doing a classic when I worked on the opening riff. Well, okay, it is a classic, actually."

The words on the newspaper at the end of this song, "Palme-saken nær en løsning?" translates as "Palme case nearly solved?" and was a real headline from the time discussing a still-unsolved murder of former prime minister of Sweden.

The newspaper at the end is one of Norway's largest papers, "Aftenposten."
