The irony of making the video was that the inspiration for the colors came from the Color Festival in India called Holi. People collect these pigments throughout the year to release them in this festival as a celebration of life and tribute to Vishnu. When it came time to shoot these scenes, there wasn't much celebration.source : noisecreep
So participating in the scenes would sacrifice the quality of the record, because the powder would affect their proper respiration. I guess that may have added to the emotion of the piece. But once the powder started being flung around, it wasn't so bad. Also, needless to say, there wasn't any injuries during the filming of this post-apocalyptic visual clip, and we were able to complete the album with the intended quality.
On day two of the shoot, I shot scenes of Chester under the surface of water. I have a tendency of illustrating Chester under excruciating situations. Mainly because it matches the music so well. He wasn't very thrilled about the idea of singing and water going up his nose. When you watch the video, the pain and agony is genuine. I guess the good thing is that the water from day two acted as a cleansing agent of any powder left in the sinus from the day previous.
