In 1998, the single went on sale in Europe, soon the first professional video team (and the second on this song) was removed after that. He became the director for Markus Walter. That he belonged to the idea to make the first clip in the scenery of the ice cave and Gothic ruins. During the video shoot was a misunderstanding that has resulted, however, for a split group. Directed by mistake counted HIM quartet, so the fifth member of the group, Antti, appears in the video is just for a few seconds at the end, in a snowman costume.

In 2000, a new version of the single «Wicked Game» was released on the album Razorblade Romance. Then came the so-called “version of the bar.”
