The video is a homage to the Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film The Shining based on the Stephen King novel. Several scenes are based on the film, such as when Shannon Leto enters Room 6277 and encounters the woman in the bathroom and another when Matt Wachter is served drinks at the bar by a doppelgänger apparition. The video culminates in an elegant ballroom in the same manner as the photo at the end of the film. At 2:07, the papers that Jared Leto has been typing are briefly made visible and the words on them appear to read, over and over, “This is who I really am. ” This is another allusion to The Shining, in which Jack Torrance types up pages and pages of the same line, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”, over and over in the same sense. The scene with a man in a bear costume, in a bedroom, is also from The Shining.
