The visual also contains a number of several blink-and-you'll-miss-it moments, including several nods to Stanley Kubrick films and the Paul is dead
urban legend that surrounded the Beatles (see the white car's changing license plate around the one-minute mark). "It's a very different video; if you've watched our videos, you know to expect the unexpected. But I think this is my favorite," frontman Dan Reynolds told MTV News. "There's a lot going on it it, some if it is subliminal. 'Sno Gard.' I'll say that. It has no meaning to you, but when you see the video, you'll be like 'Sno Gard ... okay, Dan gave me a good hint.'"
The phrase "Sno Gard" — which is "Dragons" spelled backwards features several times in the clip.
