The video shows the band at the funeral of the lead singer, Till Lindemann, with some other mourners, one of whom is Marilyn Manson. A fight breaks out between two women who have had Till's children. Meanwhile, the rest of the band contemplate who should replace Lindemann as the singer (Henry Rollins and James Hetfield are suggested, with Hetfield presumably being picked, as his picture was shown more than once, as well as being pointed to by one of the band members). As the video continues, Lindemann is lowered into his grave below the inscription "endlich allein" and many scenarios are shown of how Lindemann died, which are all based on previous Rammstein videos: being beaten and set on fire by Christoph Schneider, having his rope cut while rock climbing by Richard Kruspe, having his oxygen pipe removed from his space suit by Oliver Riedel while on the moon, and a fat Lindemann being suffocated with spaghetti force-fed to him by Christian Lorenz.

Just before announcing the premiere of the video, Rammstein's website left this quote regarding the song: "the shark not only has teeth - he's got tears as well. But since it lives in the briny deep, no one sees them. A shame. After all, this cartilaginous fish is one of the oldest of the world's many misunderstood creatures. A bit more sympathy couldn't hurt!" See more
