The common thread between the song "1600cc Engine" and Buckler's video is a strong theme of persevering through loss; lost love, faith, and innocence. Buckler's unique visual approach to these themes are as humorous as they are unsettling; showing his lost faith in the corporate news media's ability to present unbiased and truthful reporting. The video, which was shot entirely in Japan, centers on a surrealistic news broadcast that spirals out of control and erodes the barrier between public and private life. Starring in the video are two notable personalities from Japan's music and arts scene. In the role of the tormented news anchor, Yohey Yamamoto, is a famous Osaka DJ, artist, and activist (who is seeking to decriminalize dancing in Japan). Along with Japanese TV personality, Yoko Honaga, as the menacing, dancing weather correspondent.
