Video facts

  • The video first premiered on MTV Germany on Monday, Nov. 8th 2004 at 4.03pm directly following the MTV News.[1]
  • There were 5 or 6 ideas for the video. Some of the band members wanted to make a video at sea, others wanted to make it in the mountains.[2]
  • Richard wanted to make a video based on Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Match Girl" because it was the only fairy tale that made him cry, but the idea was rejected.[2]
  • According to Joern Heitmann, this is the most emotionally engaging video he has ever made with the band.[2]
  • For the video, the band members grew beards, because in the mountains there is no time to shave. Flake was the only one to have an artificial one.[2]
  • During the making of, Till can be seen wearing a shirt which makes fun of Flake and his beard.[2]
  • The climbing scene was shot on one of the climbing walls next to a parking lot, and the band could go as high as they wanted to.
  • The band was accompanied by an experienced climbing team who taught them how to correctly climb the wall.[2]
  • The video was shot at +20 degrees. The snow was artificial, and the snow storm was created with the help of machines.[2]
  • Emanuel Fialik's assistant expressed his concerns about whether any of the band members would get hurt while shooting a video in the middle of the tour.[2]
  • Heitmann claimed that no one would have been able to stop Till from playing the falling scene.[2]
  • The original idea was that Flake would have to carry Till together with Schneider at 3,400 m above sea level, which was physically impossible for him.[2]
  • Richard admits that everyone always fights for their own scene when shooting videos and everyone wants to be able to play a part, so it's hard to work with them on the set.[2]
  • For Heitmann, the emotional message in the video is very important; Ohne dich shows unity in the band.[2]
  • Richard said that the most important thing is to stick together, everything else is irrelevant.[2]
